As some of you may know September of 2012 marks the Hartford Track Club’s 50th Anniversary. To mark this milestone, the Hartford Track Club is hosting an anniversary celebration in conjunction with the Hogsback Half Marathon. I would like to formally (not sure that that’s the right word) invite HEAT to the celebration. In addition, if any HEAT members would like to run in the Hogsback Half Marathon they can get a $10 discount.
See the members only forum for the code or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s the schedule of events:
All activities will be taking place at the Goodwin Dam, Durst Road in Colebrook Connecticut.
Hogsback Half Marathon – 9 a.m. The half marathon will begin at 9 a.m. and the course will be open for three hours. Both the race shirts and the finisher medals will be special “50th Anniversary” editions and all runners are invited to our post-race 50th anniversary celebration. Runners can register online here or can down load a paper application here.
50th Anniversary Celebration Begins – 10:30 a.m. As the first half marathon finishers cross the finish line, our 50th Anniversary Celebration will begin. We’ll have a catered lunch (baked chicken, red potatoes, salad, apples, apple pie, cider donuts and the traditional post-race bagels and bananas), music, raffles (every runner, guest and volunteer will receive 5 tickets for free) and give aways of Hartford Track Club apparel.
Family 1/2 Mile Race – 11:15 a.m. There will be a 1/2 mile fun run across the Goodwin Dam. No registration is required and all children who participate will receive a special finishers award.
Awards & Recognition Ceremony – 11:30 a.m. The Hogsback Half Marathon awards ceremony will begin promptly at 11:30 a.m. In addition to awards for the overall and age group winners of the half marathon, we will also be recognizing and presenting awards to the Hartford Track Club’s founding members and individuals who have been members for 25+ and 10+ years.
Raffle – 12 p.m. After the awards ceremony, we’ll have some great prizes to raffle off. If you or someone you know would like to donate a raffle prize (you’ll receive recognition on our website, Face Book Page and at the event) please contact me at email@example.com.
Let me know if you have any questions and I hope to see you on September 22, 2012.

HEAT is one of the sponsors of this triathlon for children ages 4 – 14.
A message from HEAT president Tony Lombardi:
Swim like a sunny, bike the beans out, run, run, run!Kids Who Tri Succeed is a great race for aspiring young athletes. This is the 7th year for kids ages 4-14 to put all their oozing energy into the combination of pretty routine, and likely well practiced, summertime activities.
Thanks to our Sponsors, Biker’s Edge, Chiropractic Center of Vernon, Dartmouth Endocrinology, H.E.A.T., and our supporters, Newington Bicycle, Farmington Village Dental, Scott’s Cyclery, Village Springs, Horst Engineering, Canton Auto Supply and Dan’s Awards & Engraving, every racer will go home with a t-shirt, finisher’s medal and a great big story to tell.
Kids Who Tri Succeed – Children’s Triathlon will take place on Saturday, August 25 at 9:30am on the grounds of Mansfield Middle School and the beautiful Bicentennial Pond. Preregistration cost (by 8/22) is $15. Since this is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event, a one day $10 membership fee will be charged if the racer is not a current USA Triathlon member.
Encourage the children in your life to stay fit and happy by clicking www.kidswhotrisucceed.com to get all the details and preregister.

Please consider joining us in this bike ride on Saturday May 5th in Groton. Thanks – Vin Darcy – HEAT Membership Director
To benefit BIAC, raising funds to provide critical brain injury prevention and resource services throughout CT. Ride from Eastern Point Beach, Groton, CT to Westerly, RI and enjoy beautiful views of historic lighthouses and scenic country roads. Riders, sponsors, and volunteers needed. For more details visit www.biact.org , call 860-219-0291 x 309 or email Joy Morse at firstname.lastname@example.org
From Karen A.
Some background: The ride is a fundraiser for Brain Injury Association of CT. My personal involvement with the ride has much to with its founder, Joe Damon. Joe was an ironman triathlete, runner and cyclist. I met him about 10 years ago through my husband. He was a friend who was always patient enough to hang back with me on a group ride or offer advice when I was new to cycling. A few years later he moved to Italy. While living there he was in a serious car accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury. He returned to the states to complete his recovery. He has recovered enough to ride a bicycle and for the past 3 years has spent months training for this 62 mile ride.
The 62 miles ride begins at Eastern Point beach in Groton CT near the UConn campus and travels out to Westerly RI and back. There is also a shorter 25 mile ride. This ride is a good option for someone looking to do their first metric as it is fairly flat.

Place your order for fall/winter/racing gear. Orders for HEAT Champion Custom Gear may now be placed in the store.
What size do I order?
All garments are based on the jersey and short patterns. Keep in mind that outer layer garments like vests and jackets are designed to be worn over other garments, so when in doubt order a size up. For skinsuits and tri suits, Champion suggests ordering the same size as your shorts. For arm/knee/leg warmers and gloves, order the same size you normally wear.
The club cut is a more relaxed, American fit. Don’t be confused – the club cut is not a baggy cycling jersey. It’s still a classic cycling jersey – it’s just not as tight as a race cut. The following is a tip from Champion Systems, “We tell our customers this – if you are not a competitive racer, don’t order the race cut.”
Women’s jerseys are only available in one cut. This cut features a slight hourglass shape, in that it is nipped slightly at the waist so that it has a more feminine curve. The women’s jersey also does not have elastic at the waistband. However, some of Champion System’s female customers order a men’s club cut jersey, depending on their style preferences.
What products can I order?
At the HEAT store, you can order men’s and women’s cuts in the following:
- Bike Jerseys
- Cycling Shorts
- Wind Vest
- Tech Fleece Jacket
- Winter Jacket
- Marathon Singlet
- Running Race Shorts
- Lycra Arm Warmers
- Running Cap
- Tri Tops
- Tri Shorts
- HEAT Polo Shirt
What is the deadline for placing an order?
The order will be submitted the end of September. Gear should arrive in November.
