2016 ENDURrun #TeamNick

It’s time to announce the next #HPendur team – H+P #TeamNick!


Rather than put all of our best runners on one team, this year we have split them up to make 4 equally matched teams.  #TeamNick is stacked to give the H+P Women’s Team and H+P Men’s Masters Team a run for their money, but it will be close!  Not only that, #TeamNick is equally matched up with #TeamGreg (to be announced soon), and the entire competition could come down to the final day: the marathon. Nick and Greg will be facing off against each other in this 42.2K beast of a race, and it should be anybody’s game!

Follow the H+P ENDURrun team challenges starting August 7th!

Here’s how H+P #TeamNick stacks up:
