It’s time to announce the fifth of seven #HPendur team – H+P Team Switzer!
Team Switzer, named after the legendary Katherine Switzer (the first woman to run the Boston Marathon in 1967) includes 5 speedy ladies, along with our food sponsor, Mike Hewitson, and Bechtel veteran, Justin Buis. With our first 4 teams being evenly matched for battle, Team Switzer isn’t missing out on the fun since they going to have their own demons to face in the form of an equally matched H+P Team Prefontaine (full roster coming soon)!
