Relay -- Interested?

Since we were snubbed by the Nike Hood-to-Coast Relay this year - despite our strong performance and tremendous enthusiasm and spirit - I was wondering if you guys would be interested in getting the band back together for a relay in late August.

Matt has all those mullets and banjo music that he's dying to use -- and this looks like a pretty good event. (LaCrosse, WI to St. Paul, MN)

Don't know if this conflicts with anything on the race schedule of the triathletes - it's after the Distance Classic, prior to the Chicago Half and should be prior to Ed's return to Harvardland.

Check this out and let me know what you think:

By the way -- this can be done as an open mixed (6 guys - 6 gals) or an ultra (6 guys). The winning time for the ultra was 26 hours last year. We would very likely be much better than that. That would have been just under 8 minutes per mile. Even at ultra distance - our six guys from hood to coast should average closer to a 7 minute mile.

I'd be interested, if I decide to bail on the Chicago Triathlon. As time goes by, I am becoming less and less interested in taking time away from running.
