Harvard Athletic Achievements

Hardin was essential in Harvard cross country’s fabulous run, beginning in the fall of 1967. Harvard won 33 straight dual meets from 1967-1970 and four Heps titles. Hardin was known for his training philosophy: “Training only makes it easier to do. You still have to go out there and do it.” And Hardin did it. His time of 8:48.8 for two miles remains an Ivy best and a Harvard outdoor record.
