We went into the race with a primary goal of having fun but definitely gave it our all during our respective legs. The race can be done as a single person completing all 9 legs (running, riding, paddling) or as a relay. It is essentially an all-day race. We did it as a relay, with each of us taking 3 legs. We did well and finished with a total time 20-30 minutes off the winners in the individual and relay divisions. In a testament to their studliness, the top finishers in the solo division, Alex Provost and Jason Urckfitz, finished within 10 minutes of the fastest relay team, a 9-person crew.
