Bourbon Chase!! We could have a H.E.A.R.T. team..

Post by echoguy on Tue Apr 22, 2014 8:50 am

Hey Everybody:

It struck me this morning that with our change in venue for the fall meet up to November, that opens up the possibility of having a HEART team in the Bourbon Chase! http://www.bourbonchase.com/

It is Friday and Saturday, Oct 10-11. My running club has two teams (enough for 24 total runners) entered in the event and I am sure that we could have room to have at least one of the vans, (6 runners and a driver), and maybe two vans, made up of all HEART runners. No pressure to be particularly fast, but it is an endurance event. It would be a good platform to interact with the other teams and show that a bunch of folks with heart conditions can still run. There is a lot of down time waiting for runners to come in so there is a good bit of interaction amongst the teams. Very different than most other running events.

Runners run three legs during the 24-28 hour relay that can vary between 3-8 miles. I have the vans rented and a hotel in the middle of the race reserved where we will get 1.5 to 2 hours of sleep in a comfortable bed. This is our fourth year of doing the event, so we are pretty comfortable with the logistics. Total costs for the registration, van rental, gas, and hotel in the middle comes to about $250.

I would love to show you guys this event. We have talked of doing a relay one year, and here is one that has fallen in our laps.

Who is in????

I have always wanted to try one of those.  If there is a team that would accommodate my dead slow @ I would definitely be interested. (And I have prior experience staggering in the dark!)

Oh, this is tempting.  I sent my Dave the video from the site.  When do you need a definite answer?

Are you still on endorphins today from yesterday??  You should be!   sunny sunny

It would be nice to know if we are going to have a HEART van by the end of May.

For those of you who have not done one of these before, you don't really see much of the other van except at the end. But, you get to be very well acquainted with those in your van.

So....we have half of a van so far. Spots are going fast. Who else is in????

I just got alerted to this via spam from a triathlon promoter:

http://www.thirdcoastrelay.com/

If we can't pull off the Bourbon maybe the 2015 edition of 3rd Coast might be an option.

Looks like it passes right by Rachel's front door.

Gary is also very familiar with the Great Lakes Relay that takes place in the upper lower peninsula of MI

We are seriously considering this.  Watch the video in the third paragraph on this page:

I remember the beautiful pictures Brian posted last year.

Third Coast Relay IS pretty much out my front door.....in fact I just ran a little tiny section of this yesterday as well as this morning......in the future I see a party happening at my house....I know Gary LOVES Michigan....(Michigan the STATE not the team)

Bourbon Chase looks like the relay for 2014!!!

I'm nervous about this, after a lot of careful thought, I am committing to Bourbon Chase.  I want to run the blue grass state, years ago I thought I would live in Kentucky someday and since that isn't going to happen, this will be the next best thing.   Smile
Oh, Brian, are we wearing tutus?  lol!

That is great Louise! Tutus would be appropriate.

We still have some seats in the van. Who else is in??

Do you really think that the color will make any difference???......At the very least it should have sparkly thingamabob doodads to make me a better target during the night.
