As we are in our 10th year of existence as a running group, our 10th Anniversary on June 30th 2020, marks 10 years to the day Maryann Harkins and I embarked on our first training run known as the Selden Hills. To commemorate, the Selden Hills Warriors, Hall of Fame has been created. This is something that is not only meaningful, it is something long lasting. The Hall of Fame, will serve as a reminder of how far we’ve come in 10 years and will be something to look back on years from now and beyond.
Selden Hills Hall Of Fame Requirements.
A place of honor for those hillbillies who have endured the rigors of our hills as well as achieved some outstanding things in doing so!
A place to honor long time members of the group who have established themselves as worthy recipients through dedication and distinction.
Runners will become eligible to be nominated and accepted into the HOF under the following criteria:
A) Having 6 (six) years of continuous active membership.
B ) Having earned the monthly mileage leader board a total of 36 or more times
OR having earned a Warrior of the Month or Warrior of the Year award and earning at least
1 (one) leader board in each of the 6 plus years.
The criteria is weighted most heavily on dedication with a secondary weighting going to achievement and excellence.
C) Members under consideration to be nominated must also be deemed in good standing and having made a positive impact and contribution to the group as determined by the HOF Selection Committee.
The Committee will be comprised of myself, KC Brett, Rick Secor and John Greene. All original members who joined the group in the first 12 months.
The Committee will also select one member each year who for reasons out of their control could not or did not meet the criteria due to injury, relocation or other life event.
The Committee selects inclusion into the inaugural HOF class of 2019 my co founder of the Selden Hills Warriors, Maryann Harkins. Member since 6/30/10.
#2 on the roll call. Absent for several years 2011-2016 to raise her handsome boys Jeffrey and Matthew. Back on the hills with a vengeance each and every week.
Congratulations to all members!!
Subsequent members will be nominated and voted in as they meet the above criteria.
At the end of 2020 the committee will vote on an additional selection for inclusion.
As the years go by and more members are added to the HOF we can look back and see where we began and how we moved forward as time goes by.
I hope it’s an honor many of you can strive toward in your running journey.
