HFC Senior and Masters Runners Among Nations Best
2020-02-17 - Midway through the 2020 indoor track season, three of HFC\'s masters and senior runners currently have indoor track times for their respective age groups among the top five in the United States, and also among world\'s best. According to the World Masters Rankings website current rankings in the 40-44 age category have T.J. Unger\'s mile time second in the U.S., his 3000 meter time first in the U.S., and his 400 meter time second in the U.S. In the 50-54 age group, Tim Hoff\'s 800 meter time ranks second in the U.S., while Jason Cakouros\' 800 time ranks fourth in the U.S. and his 3000 meter time second in the U.S. Mike Daniel\'s mile time is also in the top ten in the U.S., 40-44 age group; and Tim Hoff\'s mile time is fifteen in the U.S., 50-54 age group. Several of these times are also in the top times worldwide at the present time, and almost all age-grade between 85 and 90%. The World Masters Rankings website contains the most complete rankings of masters, seniors, and veteran runners available in the world. Quite an accomplishment for one local running club!
