This first year I am opening it up to all interested females. The cost of registering a team is $1100, which I won't do until I have 12 team members who have payed their $100 each. The extra $9 a person will go towards the cost of gas (this will not be enough to cover all the gas, so plan a bit more to help cover the cost of gas).
You need not be a fast runner. My focus is on the experience we will have while doing it, not the speed we do it in. The relay will require you to run three legs of this 180 mile relay race in mountainous terrain. While there is some variance in the distance each runner must run, most runners will need to run around 16 miles total in a 24 hour time period. If you have the desire to be, but are not yet a runner, we would love to have you on our team next year when there is sufficient time for you to prepare.
I hope to have our team set up and registered by this time next week. The race is capped at 200 and there is no way for me to know how much longer space will be available. Once I am sure that we have enough for a team, we can assign the legs, and begin to specialize our training. I will then begin posting workouts and running tips that will help you prepare for the race. Until then extend your 20 min. interval training 3x a week to 30 min. 2x a week, with one day a week endurance distance running.
