HARDCORE RUNNERS & BEGINNERS WANTED
Last year 12 of us went on an ADVENTURE of a life time and did the Wild West Relay in Colorado and this year I want to take on yet another relay race, but this time on the BEACH!!!The running Buddies and I have been chatting like crazy about a race that we would like to get some people together for. It is called Ragner Relay Race Santa Barbara to Dana Point, April 23-24th 2010. We would love to get 12 runners together to do this with!
CHECK OUT LAST YEARS RUNNERS!
PICTURE THIS: “Beach Bunnies. Movie Premiers. You and 11 of your closest friends running day and night. Starting in the American Riviera, Santa Barbara, your team of 12 runners will embark on a 177 mile adventure-fest. The party in your van will only get better as you leap frog your way down the beautiful Pacific Coast. You'll feel the ocean-spray as you fly past the star-studded Malibu, Ca and the "South-Swells" of Huntington Beach. The race (and your stamina) will wrap up where the spectacular bluffs meet the crashing waves of Dana Point.”
Running three legs during a 24-hour relay race is much easier than you think. Each team member runs three legs, ranging between 3 and 8 miles. This relay race is physically demanding, but legs vary in difficulty, and runners can choose their legs. This unique relay format makes Los Angeles an accessible race for beginners yet challenging enough for the most competitive.
How do you get from one exchange to the next? Each team is allowed two support vehicles. The first vehicle will drop off the first runner, drive ahead a few miles, cheer the runner on, and provide them with water, snacks, and plenty of love. That vehicle will then drive ahead to the first exchange point to drop off the second runner and pick up the first runner when that leg is complete. They will repeat this pattern for six legs until they hand off to their second vehicle. This leapfrogging pattern will continue all the way to the finish line.
The cost will be $100 per runner + the two rental vans split 12 ways + gas of course you would have to pay for transportation to and from the relay!
Ok so who is interested?!!!! I think this would be an amazing bonding experience, and so much FUN!
Please send me an email so I can add you to our list!
