8/11/2018 - Get back to it - Runtoberfest HELP - DRAKE!!

Ok. School is back in. Routine is the name of the game. Get your fine self out to Drake and move your body! We'll have an option tomorrow for walkers only! As we ramp up to the C25K program for Runtoberfest, let's start with walking. Hope to see some previous loop runners hanging around for the walk as well. This is a great opportunity to see what HNL is about and meet some of the people. Call a friend, register for the HNL 5K Runtoberfest, commit to making all the couch to 5K training runs. It's going to be fun!

Speaking of HNL's Runtoberfest....need some of you to register ASAP. There is a price increase at the end of the month and we'd love for you to get the best deal possible. We're at 42 registrants and we need about 458 more! There are over 500 members of the HNL run group site on FB and we need more OGs like yall to sign up! See that sexy link up top "Runtoberfest"? Click it and we can all feel better about ourselves.

I expect to see a great crowd tomorrow! Should be back in the saddle! I'm really excited to be back at it after missing two weeks in a row. There are options for everyone! COMMIT!

6:30 - 60 min

8/4/2018 – EXCITING DAY – HNL Runtoberfest – Drake Loops

It’s a great day! Isn’t our new website badass? Many thanks to April, Scott, and Melissa for their hard work on making this so great. This is the spot where we’ll publish all our run info and HNL related news. It’s really cool!

This is also a great time to announce that the registration for the HNL Runtoberfest 5K is live! The registration link to share is www.runhnl.com then navigate to Runtoberfest. Please help us out by registering yourself today. We need to make sure the site and registration link are good to go so please take some time TODAY and get yourself registered and your place secured. Yes, I know some of you will be volunteers but register anyway and ensure yourself a shirt and sweet swag bag. We will need your help in the coming weeks as we promote this event so this weekend is really important in getting set for the big push. REGISTER NOW!!! Also, let us know if you encounter any issues (that’s the most important part).

The HNL Runtoberfest couch to 5K training program will start in a few weeks. It’s totally free and we need to push this info along with any messaging you have on social media about the race. Please include the fact that it’s completely free with registration and info on the runs will be published here.

I’m STILL on vacation so I won’t be at the run. We need some leaders for the following loops:

6:30 – 60 min

7:30 – 30 min

8:00 – C25K 15:00 run 15:00 walk

Much love HNL! See you for a massive group as school gets back underway. Thanks for your commitment to our organization. We’re doing big things and it’s pretty exciting to see!


7/21 - Three Loops! NEED LEADERS NEXT TWO WEEKS - HNL 5K Runtoberfest Update

We'll have the humid goodness ready for consumption tomorrow morning at Drake. The C25K group is transitioning to a full on run and the lurkers I tagged on FB are finally coming out of the shadows! I'll be in the mountains next Saturday so we need a long group leader and the weekend after that I'm at out again so be ready to step up twice.

April, Scott, and Melissa have been working hard on the runhnl.com website and we should be seeing the fruits of their labor very soon. I think you're gonna love the new spot for all the run info and race registration. Ryan did an awesome job researching and choosing our race registration website which will be seamlessly integrated into the new runhnl.com. I'll be announcing the need for some of you people to register very soon. We need to have HNLiens register first so we can make sure the whole thing works before we go advertising it. Once we make it official, we need your help getting the word out and getting our registration numbers to our goal of 300. Whole race committee meeting 7/30 at 6:30 location TBD. 

Here is the info for the Drake based run tomorrow:

6:30 - 60 min

7:30 - 30 min

8:00 - C25K - 15:00 Run 15:00 Walk


7/14 Poker Run Redux DRAKE - Friday Night Slow Ride

Don't forget the slow ride tonight! We'll meet for a restaurant to restaurant ride starting at El Ranchero Westpark at 6:30. The second location will be Partners Pizza then we'll vote after that to see where else the evening takes us. This will be a lot of fun and you don't want to miss it. BE THERE!

Last week must have been a travel day for HNL. We'll give the 7/7 poker run another go. Bring a $1 scratch off lottery ticket for each loop you want to participate in. If you're doing two loops, bring two tickets. Winner each loop gets half the tickets, HNL gets the rest which we'll use on a laundrymat fairy operation.

C25K! We're repeating last weeks run so if you missed it, you can get back in it!
