2015 HFP Man Speaks in review

HFP Man_REVThe WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for my blog. I thought it was kind of cool and maybe something that might interest some of my readers. Thanks for supporting HFP Racing! Looking forward to seeing you at a race soon.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 34,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 13 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

We are

  • A team of enthusiastic, dedicated amateurs triathletes and duathletes with day jobs. We like to race locally, regionally and some of us nationally.
  • We are an inclusive team of individuals of different experiences and abilities. We are not semi-pro. If you believe you are, we’re probably not a good fit.
  • We race because we love it. We love it because we are competitive and we enjoy testing ourselves. And because we get to race against our friends.

We commit

  • We commit to participate in a minimum of 4 HFP Racing races and / or events a year.
  • We are the ambassadors of HFP Racing: and of our race team sponsors (ie:Roll).
  • When we race, we are the heroes! We are not the jerks.
  • We thank our sponsor for supporting our racing habit, by actively supporting, promoting and reinvesting in our sponsors (Roll) businesses, the brands they carry, and their people in return.
  • We also commit to support each other. On race days and on the days in between.

We get

  • 10% off any regular bike, clothing or gear purchases in all roll: stores.

We agree

  • Everyone gets a onetime pass to come back next year at the discretion of the team leadership.
  • Team members who have met their commitment, that don’t want to return to the team the following year will be heartily thanked for their contributions, and still welcomed      under the HFP tent at the races.
  • Departing team members who have not met their commitments by the end of the year, will be asked to contribution to an HFP Racing charity, equal to the $’s discounts they received from our sponsors during the season.

Run course change for Mohican Endurance Festival

Mohican B_02 (1)After inspecting the course(s) last week for the Mohican Endurance Festival I’ve decided to change the run course and keep participants on the park roads within the park. This will still provide participants a beautiful rolling run course on mostly shaded park roads. Trail conditions and medical staff accessibility were key factors in the decision to change the course.

Ultimately, I feel this will positively impact the race and provide participants with a much safer more enjoyable run course.

Here is the map my run link and the printable map. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the end of the month at the Mohican Endurance Festival.
Sincerely,
Shannon Kurek

Team HFP Racing Benefits

Team members will receive numerous benefits with your membership including:

  • Discounts on Top-notch, Super sweet, Custom-made Safetti/Team HFP apparel & gear [Click here to view 2015 uniforms]
  • Minimum 25% discount on select HFP owned events
  • Discounts on more cool stuff from participating sponsors (Go Fast Multisport, Safetti, and Infinit Nutrition)

As with any team, your membership comes with certain benefits and certain expectations. Below we have outlined the expectations to be on the team. We have a pretty simple philosophy: do more — get more. We have team members that have been racing with us for 2 decades or more and no longer pay to race because they go well beyond the call of duty for HFP Racing. Others have been on the team just as long but choose to do just the minimum to continue to get their standard benefits — both are OK.

EXPECTATIONS OF TEAM HFP MEMBERS:

  • Always follow USA Triathlon & USA Cycling rules and exhibit the highest of all sportsmanlike conduct
  • Purchase a minimum of at least one 2015 tri top & one tri bottom per season
  • Race all 2015 events (HFP or others — minus Team USA events) in official 2015 Team HFP apparel
  • Don’t race in pre-2015 uniforms (feel free to train in them) — we’re back with longtime apparel sponsor (Safetti) and thus require ALL team members to race in 2015 uniforms.
  • Race a minimum of 3 HFP Racing events
  • Volunteer at a minimum of 1 HFP Racing event per year that you will NOT be racing at
  • Distribute HFP Racing promotional materials in your local area workout facilities, bike/triathlon shops, nutrition stores, etc.…
  • Encourage and cheer on finishers after you’re done racing
  • All members are encouraged to warm-up and cool down with non team members
  • Have a huge impact on the sport by being a great steward of multisport
  • Introduce at least 3 people to the sport and get them to an HFP event
  • You must be or become a yearly USAT Member before receiving any Team benefits.
