183 wild miles
By relling on Apr 27, 2006
This weekend is the Wild Miles Adventure Relay race through the local desert. I just found out about it last Sunday, as word got out that the organizers need some assistance for communications. Cell phones are pretty much useless in some parts of the course and they need to be able to assist the runners as needed. Some of us ROARS members have volunteered to help provide communications are various checkpoints along the course. It should be fun.
In a nutshell, the Wild Miles Adventure Relay is a relay foot race on a 183 mile long course through the mountains and desert in eastern San Diego county. This year, 44 teams are competing. The race begins Saturday morning at 05:30 and should finish Sunday evening. They will run all night long. It takes a dedicated runner to compete in these events... not for the casual jogger. If you get a chance to prepare, maybe you can enter next year.
