Anyone who has ever been to an HFP Racing event knows of our fondness for Team RWB and the awesome work they do with Veterans. Eagles Rock, and we love seeing them carrying the colors before and during the races! One of our Ohio Eagles just had his “snowglobe shaken” badly, and is in need of our help. As always, Team RWB convenes a congress of Eagles, and our injured Eagle isn’t flying solo. Here’s how you can help too.
Matt and Callie Kelley appear to be what everyone strives to be when we wish we were better people. Matt is a US Army veteran who served honorably for years, including combat deployments. Callie is a social worker in the Cincinnati area, and together they serve as foster parents for at risk kids in the Cincinnati area, with as many as 10 kids in their home at a time, waiting for a forever family. Heart, service, and love are all words that can accurately paint the Kelley picture. Matt hasn’t been a regular at HFR Races in the past few years because of his commitment to his every growing family, but he’s still “one of us”.
One day last month, Matt came home to find his wife Callie lifeless in bed. She had passed away overnight, and he was left to continue on without her. I personally can’t image many worse days.
Over the last few weeks Matt has been reshaping his world, while still managing to help shape the worlds of his 6 kids. The mission continues.
Our chance to be of assistance comes this weekend (and longer) as their friends and family are hosting a benefit to support the family of Callie Marie Kelley. Held at the 50 West Brewery in Cincinnati, it will feature auction items, raffles, and more in an effort to help Matt with continuing on. HFP Racing has donated a “race for a year” certificate – good for all races in the 2018 season. Other folks have also donated some great items, and there is a GoFundMe page set up in her honor at
Calling all College age young ladies that are active triathletes!

Welcome to the 2018 American Triple-T!
What IS the American Triple-T? Well, it’s everything you’ve heard it to be, and more. The event is so much more than your typical “triathlon weekend” — it’s a triathlon achievement of epic proportions for all who partake. It is 3 consecutive days of racing, gelling together 4 races covering a total of more than 70 miles (SPRINT ST) or 140 miles (XTREME XT) for the weekend. You will find yourself swimming in the chilly spring-fed lakes, riding the most technically challenging hills in Ohio, and finishing with out-and-back runs along the trail systems climbing and descending those same hillsides.
The American Triple-T is not for the weak or faint of spirit. It has humbled many triathletes who didn’t take it seriously, and it validates a host of others who test their “tri-mettle” at the “T” every year. Athletes from all 50 states, and 4 continents have all sought the privilege of earning their American Triple-T finisher T-shirt. Competitors, volunteers and spectators all come away with a new appreciation of the sport and of the athletes who train and tame mind and body to complete this legendary event.
You’ll also come away with newfound friendships, and you’ll solidify those bonds every year you come together to face this demon. There are even a special few who turned their initial shared experiences at the American Triple-T into a union of souls, and they came back the next year to compete as husband and wife! While we cannot guarantee that you’ll find your soul mate at the “T”, we will guarantee an incredible, unforgettable experience unique in the triathlon world. So please, take your time, peruse the website, and check out all of the unique aspects of this amazing weekend event, then reach deep down and find the courage to sign up and join us at the 2018 American Triple-T on June 1-3.
Don’t miss this great opportunity to race in one of the most unique events in triathlon. Register before December 31 at Midnight to avoid a $50.00 price increase for both distances.
