Meet the HFP Family


Shannon Kurek, Founder

Shannon steers the HFP Racing ship in dedicating most of his time to operational and marketing/PR/sponsorship duties. On race day you'll find Shannon setting up aid stations, laying out traffic cones and eventually leading HFP's pre-race prayer. When he's not measuring courses or writing his blog for his 4000+ readers, you'll find Shannon at the Denison University pool swimming laps or logging miles on his bike or in his Hokas on the many scenic roads of Licking County. As a dedicated family man, Shannon enjoys his downtime with his kids preferring almost any game where a score is kept.


Jennifer Kurek, Co-Founder

Jennifer is the all-encompassing, on demand, mother of 3 that is the rock that holds the foundation firm of both HFP Racing and the Kurek family. Along with homeschooling her two boys, Jennifer manages all the bookkeeping, customer service and registration related duties for HFP Racing. On race day you'll likely have a hard time pinning her down for a chat as Jennifer handles all volunteer recruitment and instructions along with handing all the details of race day from packet pick-up through post-race food. When Jennifer's not going a mile a minute as a mom and with her duties at HFP Racing, she enjoys long walks with Shannon and their Labrador "Dave" in the Denison Bio-Reserve.
