Mt. Spokane to Sandpoint 190 Mile Relay Race – 2008 whew!

Well, another 1st for me starting tomorrow (Friday).  I’ve never done a relay race before and this one sounds like a doosey! 

We start at the top of Mt. Spokane where the ski lodge is and then one of our 12 team runners starts down the mountain.  We’ll head down to where the next leg starts and wait for our runner and all the other 61 team members to pass by and then we’ll put our 2nd runner out on the course and pickup the 1st.  We’ll have two vans with 6 runners each, and after we pick up our 6th runner we’ll head somewhere to rest for about 3 1/2 hours until we’re ready to start all over for the next 6 legs. 
  We’ll continue that way running all through the night until around midnight where we’ll stop at Silverwood and ride the new killer rollercoaster!  That should be a lot of fun!  Then we head off again and run through out the night until 190 miles later we end at Sandpoint Idaho! 
  Through all 36 legs there are a number of things to keep us interested and motivated.  They have awards for the best lighted outfits, the best wig, the fastest runner, the team with the most team spirit, and on and on.  Don’t know how we’re going to do, but I think it’s going to be a blast!  Can’t wait!

Check out some of these team names:
Run Phatty Run!
Two Dudes and a bunch of Diva’s
What were we thinking??
Cheaper Than Gas
FRS-Funky Running Sisters
Bustin’ Cheeks
Tiny Shorts and the Revealers
Shh…we’re hunting woadkill
Iron Legs  (My Team!..probably how our legs will feel at the end!)
Dude, Where is My Team?!

For more information head on over to

Hopefully I’ll have the results for you by Sunday.  Oh…did I mention this will take about 28 or more hours to complete? YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. How did you do??? We were team Run Amok, probably the noisiest and annoying vans that were driving up and down supporting everyone.
