Well, the Halibloggers think that they are all cool running the Santa Shuffle. Truth be told, I’m somewhat jealous!
I got an email from a runner buddy asking me if I’d participate in the Ottawa Winterman Marathon Relay and the light bulb turned on in my head!
Make an Ottawa blogger (and reader) event! DUH!
I know for a fact there are a lot of bloggerunners in Ottawa (Nat, Sarah T, Christy, Anne B, Laura and many more I’m sure) and area (looking at YOU Krista)
Any interest in doing the Marathon Relay?
The relays are an exciting part of the Winterman Marathon. Teams of 2, 4, or 8, may challenge for relay supremacy in their divisions. Each participant on a relay team, must run the same distance as every other team member (except for the person who runs the last loop, who runs 2.22Km further than the other team members).
Each team member on the 8 person relay team, must run one full lap of 5 kilometres, except the final runner, who runs 7.22Km.
On the 4 person relay team, each person must run 10 kilometres, except for the team member doing the final lap, who will run 12.22Km. Team members may run their 2 laps consecutively, or alternate laps.
On the 2 person relay team, team members may run their 4 laps in any order or any number in a row, as long as each member runs 4 complete laps of the course, with the last one running 7.22Km.
