UPDATE 08/02: Team Random Greatness is now complete - me, Monica, Peg, Jeff and Brenda will be team one. If we get enough interest in another team (Random Greatness Too) then we can enter another one.
Team Random Greatness will be competing in several different team relays in 2013 and would love to have others from our group join our team (or assemble your own) to compete in these events along with us.
The Blackstone River Valley Greenway Challenge strings together numerous segments that include river/lake paddles, road/mountain peddles, or a road/trail plods. This will be our sixth year competing in this race. While the actual course route won't be announced until two weeks before the race (the course changes every year), this year's 57.2 mile race begins in Worcester, MA and finishes in Lincoln, RI.
There will be seven different segments:
- 1.) 4.0 mile Trail/Street/Trail Run
- 2.) 3.0 mile Lake/River Paddle
- 3.) 17.5 mile Road Bike
- 4.) 5.5 mile Mountain Bike
- 5.) 2.1 mile Flat Water Paddle
- 6.) 19.0 mile Road Bike
- 7.) 6.1 mile road Run
WE DEFINITELY NEED SOMEONE FOR SEGMENTS #3 17.5 mile Road Bike, #4 5.5 mile Mountain Bike, and #6 19.0 mile Road Bike.
WE MAY NEED SOMEONE FOR SEGMENT #1 4.0 mile Trail/Road/Trail Run.
While we will enter the Recreational Division we are looking to be competieve.
Let me know if you are interested - we need to submit our team registration by September 1st. The cost is $60 per person.

Let me know if I can answer any questions or help you put a team together. If you would like to be part of a team indicate in your RSVP what part of the race you would like to do and maybe we can piece together a team or two.
