We are a group of Chinese professionals from Bay Area, the passion of running brought us together. We love running so much that we organize our group runs every weekend. During the runs, we enjoy our favorite sport together, sharing our running stories, discussing running techniques and helping each other to run better and faster. We have a Facebook group, BAD Unknown for our team. We have 14` members in the facebook group, among them, about 30 members participate our group activities religiously. We are glad to see more and more new friends joining us.
Despite the fact that we are actually some GOOD and KNOWN people, we got our seemingly infamous name two years ago. The early few members of our group got to know each other through a popular online Chinese community mitbbs.com, it is also known as "The Unknown Space" , from there we started to organize group runs. The idea of joining a relay race "The relay 2010" came to our minds in 2010. We recruited a few more new members from a Chinese social web site bayareadragon.com, we used this web site to organize our race as well. When the time to give our team a name came, a friend of us said "BAD -- bayareadragon", "Unknown -- The unknown space", so it is BAD Unknown. Every one of us liked it, so the cool name BAD Unknown stuck from then on.
We have run the race twice in 2010 and 2012, it was such a great experience so we decided to have it every year. As more and more enthusiastic runners are joining us, please don't be surprised if you see Bad Unknown 1, Bad Unknown 2...Bad Unknown n, in the future!
