Hudson Elite Welcomes Paul Yak to the Team

We are excited to announce the newest member of Hudson Elite, Paul Yak. Paul was born in Sudan and moved to the United States with his family when he was in third grade. He attended Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. As an Augustana Viking, Paul earned three All American titles and two top fifteen finishes at the Division II Cross Country National Championships.

Paul moved to Colorado this past fall in order to chase his dreams of making an Olympic team for his native country of Sudan. This outgoing Olympic hopeful has his eyes set on qualifying for Rio in the marathon this spring. We are thrilled to add Paul's experience, determination, and positivity to our team, and we look forward to seeing where his running journey leads him.
