I was casually browsing through the pages of a fitness magazine when I stumbled upon this:
You and 9 of your closest friends running day and night, relay-style, through some of the most scenic terrain North Luzon could muster. Add in local foods, inside jokes and a mild case of sleep deprivation. The result? Some call it a slumber party without sleep, pillows or deodorant. We call it Epic Relay…
- 10 teammates
- Subic base to Zambales towns to Bataan Mt. Samat, 250 km in total, more or less…
- Two days and one night in a van… with intermittent bursts of running
- World War 2 landmarks, gorgeous countryside and a fantastic coastline, the monuments of Mt. Samat and a great new finish line!
Your relay team will consist of 10 members. During the relay, each team member runs three legs, each leg ranging from 4 – 12K and varying in difficulty.
Each team is responsible for providing two support vehicles, with five runners in each vehicle. The first vehicle will drop off the first runner, drive ahead a few kilometer, cheer the runner on, and provide them with water, snacks, and plenty of love. That vehicle will then drive ahead to the first exchange point to drop off the second runner, and pick up the first runner when that leg is complete. They will repeat this pattern for five legs until they hand off to their second vehicle. This leapfrogging pattern will continue all the way to the finish line.
