BENEFITING: MYTEAM TRIUMPH
ORGANIZER: MYTEAM TRIUMPH
I Phil Strong will be taking part in a 200 mile relay that takes course over a 36 hour period. I'll be running 14.2 miles over 3 legs (4.5, 5.2, 4.5). You can see my legs here I am runner 4 http://www.ragnarrelay.com/race/dc/legs/4. While I'm in slightly better shape this year I'm still not built for long distances, plus I'll be running with 5 fit ladies I hardly know so the opportunity to embarrass myself is through the roof! The point here is to further the cause of inclusion by spreading the message of Ainsley's Angels. Last year we had 12 runners and this year we have 30! There are now 13 chapters of AA. I'm supporting Ainsley's Angels of Maryland.
Ragnar is the overnight running relay race that makes testing your limits a team sport.
You and 11 of your craziest friends pile into two vans and tag team running 200(ish) miles, day and night, relay-style. Only one runner hits the road at a time. Each participant runs three times, with each leg ranging between 3-8 miles and varying in difficulty. So, from the elite runner down to the novice jogger, it's the perfect race for anyone.
The boys and girls supported by Ainsley's Angels are amazing! They deserve to feel included and important. Their parents, family and friends participate in this and dozens of other events each year. All of this is not possible without your help.
Where your donation goes: Since we currently do not have any membership fees required to be an Angel, everything we do is dependent on support from sponsors. Donations will help pay for jogging chairs, team trailers, maintenance of equipment, operating costs, bike carts, water rafts, and race entry fees for our Captains. It will also help to pay for the cost of t-shirts provided for our Captains, Angels and volunteers and race medals for our Captains. We aim to eventually support local special needs based schools, programs, and organizations, while also hoping to experience an out-of-area trip/race for our special athletes.
The 200 mile relay event is Sept 12th so we don't have a lot of time
Thanks for your consideration and wish me LUCK!
