In a lot of ways race directing is a never ending process you’re either planning, preparing or analyzing.  Right now I’m at the border of analyzing the 2013 races and planning for 2014 and I have some exciting news about the 1/4 Marathon, Solstice Sprint 5K and Hogsback Half Marathon.

Pricing & Registration

First all three races will open for registration on December 1, 2013 (I’m warning you now the 1/4 Marathon and Hogsback Half Marathon will sell out).  Here’s the 2014 pricing, if you register early you can lock in some great pricing:

1/4 Marathon – April 5, 2014

December 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013 – $30
January 1, 2014 through February 15, 2014 – $35
February 16, 2014 through March 15, 2014 – $40
March 16, 2014 through Race Day / Sell out – $45

Solstice Sprint 5K – June 18, 2014

December 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013 – $15
January 1, 2014 through April 15, 2014 – $20
April  16, 2014 through May 15, 2014 – $25
May 16, 2014 through Race Day – $30

Hogsback Half Marathon – September 27, 2014

December 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013 – $40
January 1, 2014 through May 15, 2014 – $45
May 16, 2014 through August 15, 2014 – $50
August 16, 2014 through Race Day / Sell out – $55

The charities for all three races will remain the same.  The 1/4 Marathon will support the Blazeman Foundation, the Solstice Sprint 5K will support the Farmington Village Green and Library Association and the Hogsback Half Marathon will support Running for Rescues.  The races raised  over $12,000 for these organizations in 2013 and would like to exceed those numbers in 2014!

Ambassador Teams (Free Race Entries and Gear)

In addition to the new registration date and pricing scheme, there will also be an Ambassador Team for the 2014 races! 

 

We’ll be picking six ambassadors who will receive free entry into all three races, Hartford Track Club and Sonic Endurance training and racing gear and some surprise goodies from our sponsors.  In exchange we ask that the selected ambassadors commit to participate in each race by volunteering and racing, promote the races via word of mouth and social media (Face Book, Twitter and Instagram) and be available to answer runner questions on the race Face Book page.  Preference will be given to current members of the Hartford Track Club (you can join the Hartford Track Club here). 

In order to apply please send an e-mail to me at kelly@sonicendurance.com by November 15, 2013 explaining why you will be a great ambassador for the 1/4 Marathon, Solstice Sprint 5K and Hogsback Half Marathon (it also will help if you currently like our Face Book pages and follow @HartfordTrack and @SonicEndurance on Twitter).  We will make a decision, and let applicants know, no later than November 30, 2013.
