Tim Hankins

After a 25-year hiatus since elementary school track, Tim rediscovered running while relocating to Arizona. In 2016, he ran his first organized 5k while visiting Chicago. A handful of 5k-15k runs followed before he completed his first half marathon in 2017 and first full marathon in early 2018.

Since then, he has been focusing on the 50 State/50 half marathon quest with his girlfriend. During the brutally hot Arizona summers, Tim prefers hiking and kayaking.

Tim likes to say, “the hardest part of running is taking the first step.”
