"Together in Boston"


"Together in Boston"

On running’s biggest stage, The Boston Marathon®, Hyland’s is recruiting beloved Healers: the menders, the nurturers and uplifters of our community, to celebrate not just the accomplishments of their work but to show us the limitless reach of their spirit.

If these words ring true to you, if you are ready to commit to the promise and challenge of Boston, then Hyland’s invites you to apply to join our team to at the 2019 Boston Marathon®.

Hyland's 2018 All-Teacher Team with Boston Marathon Race Director Dave McGillivray

What is Team Hyland's?

The Boston Marathon®. To runners, those three words evoke intense emotion, excitement and very personal dreams of achievement. It is the most prestigious race with the most coveted entry, and it represents the pinnacle of the sport. Hyland’s is proud to be returning for the fourth consecutive year as the Official Cramp Relief Sponsor of the Boston Marathon®. But we are more than a single product. We are Hyland’s, a brand committed to helping individuals, athletes, and families live their best life.

In 2017, Hyland’s assembled a team of inspirational women runners to celebrate the 50th anniversary of women running at Boston. These women came together from all around the country united by their hard work, dedication to their training, and the common goal of finding their finish lines at Boston.

For 2018, Hyland’s built a team of incredible teachers, those that inspire every day and are remembered for decades and ultimately inspire us all. The teacher connection was real and delivered our biggest, most passionate team in Boston.

In 2019, Hyland’s is recruiting Healers to apply to join Team Hyland’s on a journey celebrating the true story of human connection that happens when someone dedicates their life to serving others. Hyland’s is in the unique position of identifying these very deserving individuals and giving them the emotional, physical and financial support to get them there, with a sprinkling of fairy dust to make it the experience of a lifetime.
