Details on the race:
The 2006 River to River Relay was our first foray into the race. We were clueless. All we knew was that the race was an 80 mile relay split between at least 8 runners. How hard could running 10 miles, broken up into 3 segments, be? After all, most of us had run marathons. We eventually struggled through the hills and “finished” with a time of 11:40:10
The hills weren’t any easier, but we did much better.
Our 2007 finishing time was 10:44:26 (8:03 min/mi pace). The 2008 race was a little interesting. Due to excessive storms, the first leg of the race was eliminated. Our 2008 finishing times (we had two teams) were 9:18:23 (7:19 pace) and 9:46:22 (7:40 pace).
The River to River Relay took place on April 17, 2010. We entered 3 teams and all 3 teams performed well. Our fastest team finished 26 (out of 236) and won the running club division. This was the fourth year that we have participated in the relay. Check out the River to River Overall Results and Special Division Awards for our results. If you’re curious, here is a spreadsheet of our times broken out per runner.
Another Great Year.
Another Great Year.
We really need to write something here. But, what happens at RRR stays at RRR. Pat…I won’t say anything at all!
Only two teams in 2014, but we had a great time.
Three teams in 2015. The thunderstorms cut the day short for two of our teams, but it was still an awesome time!
Three teams in 2016. One team of four, one team of six, and one team of eight. It was a tough, hot year! One of the three teams, placed second in the Running Club division with a time of 10:52:17.
