The Human Potential Running Series Membership
Human Potential LLC (HPRS) is committed to bettering, and expanding, the Colorado Ultrarunning Community. Our mission is to create a community that is inclusive, encouraging, welcoming, and educational for all those interested in entering the world of Ultramarathon Running. We strive to do this in a way that welcomes all runners regardless of their abilities, and/or inabilities, as runners.
Despite our mission and commitment as stated above, HPRS has experienced exponential growth beyond which our local resources can feasibly handle for some of our “Free” training Runs. In an effort to control the numbers of individuals who join us, and as a way to ensure that all who do join us have accurate expectations of HPRS’ offerings, and take the time to educate themselves on the traditions of our sport; we are now instituting a Yearly Membership. We also feel that this membership program will allow all of us to focus deeper on fostering a better, closer, ultra community.

Members who run in all of our Fat Ass Training Runs, in their entirety, in the previous season (2016-2017) will have their membership waived for the following year (2018). (We had two individuals complete this task in 2014-2015, none in 2015-2016, and none in 2016-2017)
Members who attend 2 or more (16+ hours) HPRS trail work days in 2016 will have their membership fee waived for 2017.
HPRS Membership is NOT an “entry fee” for our Fat Ass Series. It is a Club/Membership Fee that covers up to 12 Months of Special “Members Only” Discounts and Events. Fat Asses are a gift, not a right, of membership.
