About us

We are a group of enthusiastic long distance runners who are in one way or another affiliated with Johns Hopkins University. We run and train together for various distances, including half- and full-length marathons.

Hopkins Marathon Team is open to all members of the Hopkins community and welcomes runners of all levels. We organize two weekly group runs: Tuesday Social Runs, a low-key running meet-up at the JHMI campus and Saturday Long Runs, with specific mileage goals related to marathon training. Please see our Training section for more info.

Mission statement

HMT is a university-wide student group dedicated to promoting personal health and fitness through running. We aim to provide an environment in which both novice and seasoned runners may thrive and achieve personal goals related to running, whether this means finishing a half marathon or marathon, setting a new personal record, qualifying for the Boston Marathon or simply to keep on running. To accomplish this, HMT organizes weekly long runs in and around Baltimore, provides structured training plans, hosts social events, and encourages experienced runners to give personalized and supportive training advice to novice runners.
