About HITS Running Festivals

HITS Running Festivals will appeal to the elite, competitive athlete running a marathon, as well as the newcomer doing the Friends & Family Mile.

Our promise of A distance for everyone!TM allows all participants a true "race environment," regardless of distance or competitive level. From the mile to the marathon, you will experience a high-quality, well-executed event from the moment you register, throughout the race and then onto the finish line celebration and Festival.

Our commitment to customer service is second to none. With more than 30 years of experience organizing some of the largest equine sporting events in the world and more than 55 triathlons under our belt in just one year, we know how to execute big events, with great attention to detail. Those details start and end with our participants. The Festivals will include dozens of cutting-edge products and educational seminars focused on health, wellness and fitness. Educational components - including sport and health specific speakers - will be present at all Festivals.

Four weekend Festivals will occur in 2015 on a regional basis around the United States. These events will be held in major metropolitan areas with large population bases, good climates for running, and places you want to visit!  Entry fees will be reasonable; and, the product you receive ... runsational! We anticipate 5,000 to 10,000 participants - with many more spectators - at each Festival.  

STAY TUNED for dates and locations, as well as news updates. Get ready to be part of HITS Running Festivals ... A distance for everyone!TM and an experience to remember!
