It’s time to announce the 6th of 7 #HPendur teams – H+P Team Prefontaine!
Team Prefontaine, named after the legendary Steve Prefontaine, is an eclectic bunch of talented and hard working runners…3 of which have names that double as nouns that are NOT proper (dragon, coffee, jon). Now that’s gotta count for something. This team is structured to be a very close challenge to H+P Team Switzer, and this running legend team battle should be one for the ages!
Follow the H+P ENDURrun team challenges starting August 7th!
