High Schools Across the U.S. Compete in Revived 2-Mile Team Tradition

Richmond, Calif. (June 9, 2015) — HOKA ONE ONE® (a division of Deckers Brands NYSE: DECK) announced the return of the second annual HOKA ONE ONE Postal Nationals. With three options for high school teams to participate, the Postal Nationals program allows all U.S. squads to compete, making it one of the most open and accessible national championship competitions in the country.

From August 15 to December 15, participating teams will race a 2-Mile or 3200m on the track to see how their times stack up. Top runners’ times will be posted online with both local and national rankings.

Unlike cross country or track meets, Postal National competitions include Flagship, Local Postal Events, and even a team time trial option.

“There are many great high school cross country programs throughout the country – and most do not get a chance to measure themselves on the track during cross country season,” says HOKA ONE ONE President Jim Van Dine. “The beauty of the Postal Nationals is that any high school can compete at any time during the season and see how they stack up against other schools throughout the country. We see it as a great way to talk about HOKA with high school runners and provide another opportunity to race during the season.”

Among the hundreds of boys and girls teams expected to participate are last year’s winning squads, the girls from Blacksburg High School in Virginia (11:18 average), and boys from Daniel Boone in Gray, Tennessee (9:32 average), who have both committed to defending their Postal National Championship.

Coaches interested in hosting a Local or Flagship event may email postalnationals@deckers.com for more information.
