This coming weekend is a race I’ve been wanting to do for a while, the Ragnar Del Sol Relay! It is a relay race from Wickenburg to Tempe that takes a circuitous path to make it 200 miles. You do it with 11 other people divided up into 2 vans of 6, alternating runners until you get to the finish line at Tempe Marketplace.
We start Friday morning at 6:30 am in Wickenburg, which will make for an extremely early morning to get there from Ahwatukee! I’m the last runner in the first van so my first running leg of 4.6 miles should start around 11 am. I’m pretty happy with the legs I get to run, I get some quality distance and relatively challenging terrain. You pretty much are up all night, sleeping when you can as we leap frog through the desert. While I’ll have to conserve my phone battery, I’m going to be tweeting pics and updates through out the race (@thm74).
My running legs are:
#6 4.6 miles Difficulty: Moderate
#18 6.5 miles Difficulty: Hard
#30 5.6 miles Difficulty: Hard
Excited for the race and hope to have some greats pics and stories to share afterwards!
