We were thrilled to have our President Hawi Keflezighi named to Runner’s World Magazine’s list of “50 Most Influential People in Running.”  

Keflezighi stays busy—and not only on account of his celebrity brother/client. Runner’s World contributing editor Peter Gambaccini describes him as “an ingenious and industrious business wizard who has dreamt up all manner of commercial opportunities for his brother Meb, Leo Manzano, and other clients.” It was “Hawi” who helped coordinate Meb’s charity challenge at the Peachtree Road Race last year. Hawi who guided Olympic 1500-meter silver medalist Leo Manzano to a then-shocking but, in retrospect, brilliant sponsorship with breakout shoe brand Hoka One One in 2014. Hawi who joined with Dave McGillivray and Superhero Events to create the potentially game-changing, qualifiers-only USA Half Marathon Invitational (to debut this November). And Hawi who ought to be the next Keflezighi the world gets to know on a first-name basis.
