HealthyHuntington.org,Inc. is an organization which was founded in 2003 and incorporated in 2010 with the goal of bringing good health to the tri-state area.
We used the HealthierUS Initiative as a guide for all to follow individually and as a community. Unfortunately the site www.healthierus.gov has been changed by the recent administration. Searching this and using information before 2009 is still an excellent guide to healthy living and setting a framework to follow for years to come.
While there has been much mentioned about diet and its contribution to health there is a misunderstanding and under use of exercise in this matter.
Those who have participated in our races will notice recurrent themes; these include having a fun atmosphere for the race; having quality shirts and medals and awards; having proper hydration available and so on.
We also try to have something for everyone at the races, for example the marathon also has the half marathon or a relay or a walk.
Due to many personal demands we have retired from race organization as of the end of 2012.
We are very fortunate in Huntington and the surrounding area to have a new organization to pick up where we leave off: Healthy Tristate.org. Please watch for them. They will use www.tristateracer.com and their calendar to post their races.
