marathon-list -- Harvard College Marathon Challenge


About marathon-list
English (USA)

Harvard College Marathon Challenge (HCMC) is an organized group of Harvard College students, employees, and affiliates who enjoy recreational running. Each year, quite a few folks train for and run the Boston Marathon, often raising money for worthy causes such as the Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA), a student-run, Harvard-based charity that operates over 70 community-based programs in Greater Boston.

BUT you needn't be a marathoner to use this listserv! We welcome ALL recreational runners who want to use this listserv to find informal "running buddies." Apropos of that, we encourage you to post runs at your preferred pace (if known) and distance to the listserv, even on very short notice, and to go on posted runs. We also use the listserv to share information about good running routes, local events/races, injury prevention and treatment, fundraising tips (for official particpants), clothing and other discounts, etc.

A word about listserv etiquette: Please post ONLY about RUNNING to this list. It's a topic-specific listserv, not a general listserv to post about other activities and causes that interest you. One person's cause is another person's spam. Thanks for your understanding!
