My hubs and some friends are planning to run in The Relay next spring in California. This is a 200-mile relay race with 36 legs. Each team has 12 members, each of whom run 3 segments. It's the like the CWRU Hudson Relays on steroids! Starting in Napa Valley and running to the Pacific Ocean, The Relay features a run across the Golden Gate Bridge at midnight. It's Saturday April 30th and Sunday May 1st, 2010.
The event races money for Organs R Us which "promotes the need for organ donors. Through walking and running, transplant recipients, candidates, organ donors, donor family members and others have generated $25 million of publicity promoting organ donation. Although started in the San Francisco Bay Area, ORU has grown throughout the US. Through participation in athletic events selected for maximum publicity and fun, this group showcases their fitness proving that organ transplantation saves lives."
Here's a video from the 2010 race - wow it looks tough!!
