“We’re excited to have solidified our partnership with the power-house NJNY Track Club, which is producing excellence in middle distance running with an incredibly accomplished coaching staff,” said Mike McManus, HOKA ONE ONE Senior Sports Marketing Manager. “Together, we want to build the best post-collegiate elite development team for milers and other talented mid-distance runners.”

HOKA ONE ONE's sponsorship of NJNYTC extends through 2020, encompassing the next summer Olympics. Sixteen members of the team qualified for this year’s U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials, with one athlete competing in Rio. The club is coached by Head Coach Francis Gagliano, Assistant Coach John Trautmann, and Assistant Coach Tom Nohilly. Twenty-two athletes currently train with the club.

“HOKA ONE ONE’s sponsorship will enable us to continue to develop and strengthen our elite athlete roster,” said Head Coach Gagliano. “With HOKA athletes already in our ranks, including Colby Alexander, Kyle Merber and Nicole Tully, the transition to HOKA ONE ONE running shoes and gear will be seamless. We’re excited to take on the world’s best with HOKA.”

This is HOKA’s second partnership with a U.S.-based, world-class running club. The HOKA ONE ONE NJNYTC team adds depth to HOKA’s elite roster, which includes the HOKA Northern Arizona Elite team led by Ben Rosario, in addition to other athletes in HOKA’s elite development pipeline in mountain, ultra, and trail running, and triathlon.
