HATR October News and Gear Sale!

Lot's to talk about this month, so let's get too it!  In this edition we'll go through a quick summary of the last month and then we'll get to a gear sale at the newly launched HATR store and talk about HATR becoming an official non-profit (we are so official)!

First, just some general news.  The club is going strong and continuing to attract new members!  We continue to had very strong representation at Texas races.  A number of HATRs made the trip to El Paso for the Franklin Mountains Trail Run back in September, and many of us ran locally at Blazing 7's in early October.  Many other races on the calendar including J&J at Camp Eagle (formerly Nueces), Rawhide out at Flat Rock Ranch and a host of others had HATRs running.  As far as volunteering, we had a good group come out to give back to the trails at the George Mitchell Nature Preserve up in Spring as part of National Lands Day on September 24.  Big thanks to all who came out and gave back to the trails!  Our weekly group runs continue to go strong with Trail Running Tuesday at 5:30 PM and the good old Saturday Group Run at 6:00 AM.  Check out the web-site for details and be sure to join us!  We've also had a group that's hitting up Huntsville State Park once a month or so, so check them out here https://www.facebook.com/hsptrailrun/

In other news, HATR has been designated by the IRS as a 501c3 public charity. This will allow us to do far more as a club!  We are accepting donations (optional dues) and they are now tax deductible!  We have worked for months for this and believe it will help advance our mission of fitness in Houston via trail running. Consider donating today at http://www.trailrunninghouston.com/join-hatr/.  Thanks to all who have contributed so far!

Lastly, we are happy to announce that we are going to have a fall gear sale that runs from Thursday, October 20th until Sunday, October 23rd!  If you ever wanted to get some of our new HATR gear, now is the time!  Use Promo Code FALL2016 to get 15% off EVERYTHING IN THE STORE!!  Check out store on the website and get your HATR gear on the cheap while you can!

That's about all for now HATRs!  See you all on the trails!
