The Redstone team will try to extend its championship tradition at the 35th annual Army Ten-Miler, Oct. 13 near the Pentagon.
Redstone has won 12 straight championships in the government agency division and 10 consecutive titles in the all-comers division.
Harry Hobbs, vice president of Huntsville Utilities employee engagement and a retired chief warrant officer 5, coaches the 16-member team of mostly returning runners. This is his 15th year at the helm.
“Every team has its own personality and this year is no different,” he said. “This year’s team has had more turnover than previous years and is hungry to earn its place in history as all the previous winning Redstone teams have done. The runners from last year’s team have done a great job recruiting new talent which will allow our team to continue to be double champions as they have for the last 10 years.
“I credit the support of AUSA, Garrison headquarters and MWR for contributing to the successes of the team. We have trained hard and expect to bring home the golden eagles again this year.”
This year’s newcomers include Col. Brian Stehle, Lt. Col. Marty Wennblom, Sgt. 1st Class Dale Chaffey, Will Bryant and Ryan Seballos.
Returnees include Hobbs, assistant coach Skip Vaughn, Sean Allan, Blaise Binns, Matt Casiano, Kyle Miller, Beck Mitchell, Will Rodgers, Daniel Sillivant, David Stout and Blake Thompson.
Redstone-Huntsville Chapter of the Association of the U.S. Army is the team’s primary sponsor. The team also receives support from the Garrison, the NASA Running Club, Fleet Feet, Redstone Federal Credit Union, and Morgan Franklin Consulting.
