White Rock Marathon Relay - R U SKERD!?!

Hey Runners (and haters) -

The White Rock Marathon is just around the corner....Sunday, December 4.  We are now entering our 3rd year as STRONG participants and of course always making our presence known around Dallas.

There are marathon, half-marathon and marathon relay opportunities.    Last year we sent three teams out in the marathon relay (5 person teams - mileage per person ranges from 4 to 7).    The marathon relay is truly a one-of-a-kind experience (nothing like standing out in the freeing cold for 3 hours waiting for your leg of the race to start.....or missing your bus to the start of your leg....not mentioning any names....).      The cost of team registration is $250 (so $50 per person).  The race expo (pre and post) are awesome with lots of cool vendors and freebies.   And then our STRONG runners meet up at a local pub after the race for food, drink and rehashing of relay horror stories.

This year, to make it easy on the "past event coordinators" (Ashley and Cat are gracefully stepping out of the middle of it this year), you will be responsible for:

1)  organizing your own team.....so go rally with your buddies around the gym and get your group together.
2)  registering your own team...but be sure to have Crossfit Strong somewhere in your team name.
3)  getting your own butt to the start of your heat (again, not mentioning any names....and Im turning my cell phone off that day).

Check out the race details - www.runtherock.com.    The Marathon Relay will SELL OUT by the end of October.....so dont sit on this.....RUN WITH IT!   And, if you need some help with your run/distance training, then email us @ run@crossfitstrong.com and lets explore some opportunities for ENDURANCE TRAINING!

    I already signed up for the half as an individual but would love to run with a group.  Anybody in for the half?

    Seems we have enough people for a team.  Probably can get to 2 teams.  I'll be creating the "No Vest" Team.  Send me a private message so that we can start to coordinate.

    Vest is a great idea -- I'll do a vest team with you Andy.

  • RudyS77 08/26/2011 13:01:54

    We need a strong team name....like Crossfit Strong and the Average Joe's......Crossfit Strongs' Roughriders.......The Aardvarks of Crossfit Strong......Crossfit Strongs' Puppy Destroyers.....yeah, I'm not very good at this....
