Hoo-rag was proud to sponsor the 8th Annual Fisher-Titus Maple City Triathlon/Duathlon on August 2, 2014 in Norwalk, Ohio with the perfect fitness accessory. The event was designed to encourage people to develop and maintain personal fitness goals. The triathlon consisted of an 800-yd. swim, 16-mile bike ride, and 3.1-mile run. The duathlon entrants ran 2 miles, followed by a 16-mile bike ride, and finished up with a 3.1-mile race. This non-competitive environment was a great event for first-time participants.
We congratulate those who completed this race and all you Hooligans out there working on your fitness – whether it be walking, running, swimming, biking – whatever you’re doing to get out and be active! And don’t forget the Hoo is the perfect fitness accessory. Have we got proof… you can’t handle the proof!
Approximately every four minutes someone in the United States is diagnosed with blood cancer. Blood cancer is the most common type of cancer in children and young adults under the age of 20.
September is blood cancer awareness month and The Hoo team has partnered up with the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society (LLS) to sponsor the Pineapple Classic 5k. The LLS exists to find cures for blood cancer and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. The Hawaiian themed run includes obstacles, costumes and a beer garden so participants have fun, get dirty and help in the fight to beat cancer. Sounds like our kind of party!

Red Bull Land Rush took place in April two days before the original Oklahoma Land Run was started with a cannon blast 124 years ago. Teams of three people took up the challenge to win a suite in Chicago for Lollapalooza 2013. Hoo-rag was there in spirit, and on top of sweaty hands or wrapped around busy wrists. We partnered with Red Bull, printing their custom designs on bandanas and neck gaiters.
This Red Bull event was based on the OG Land Run which saw 50,000 Americans race to claim free land. 2 million acres were up for grabs and all you had to do was get there first. And avoid getting backstabbed by Wild West bandits with no money, no morals, and just a few scruples. Pretty dangerous race and had Red Bull been in charge back then, there would have been less chaos.
But believe it or not, there were some people in 1889 who did enter the event for fun. If they staked a claim to a lot up to 160 acres, that would be a bonus! I guess they didn’t dread working the land with nothing but a mule, a rusty plow, and some kids not distracted by TikTok back then.
Hoo-Rag is pleased to partner with Oyster – The Race in creating a Custom Hoo-rag! An urban adventure, Oyster – The Race dares you to combine intelligence and athleticism in a challenging race. They have some upcoming races in August and September. You can put together a team and register at www.oystertherace.com. Continue reading Oyster – The Race
