Title:2013 Chicago Ragnar : Mi(xe)d Race Crisis
Date:Friday June 7th, 2013
Author:Bill Thom
Report:
Chicago Ragnar
Mi(xe)d Race Crisis

Chicago Ragnar... formerly known as the Madison Chicago Relay (MC200), formerly known as Great Midwest Relay... still consists of a racecourse winding some 200 miles from Madison, WI -to- Chicago, IL as a relay race with teams of 2 to 12 members.

Among adventure-seeking teams for 2013 was our "Mi(xe)d Race Crisis" as captained by he unflappable veteran, Thayer Coburn who built the roster...
Group 1:
1. Stacey Kincaid
2. Trudy Hart
3. Sara Norton
4. Griffin Schroeder
5. Travis Starkey
6. James Fladhammer
Group 2:
7. Tyler Neuwirth
8. Jennifer Laughlin
9. Michelle Thom
10. Jen Taylor
11. Thayer Coburn
12. Bill Thom

Teams are seeded and begin their race at The Coliseum Bar in Madison, with slower teams starting in earlier waves. Most teams travel in two separate vehicles, which shuttle and leapfrog one-another through the 36 "legs" of the race, getting teammates to "exchange zones," where they hand-off the team baton (wristband) and advance toward the finish at Montrose Beach, Chicago.

Weather was a "runner's delight" for 2013 Ragnar with temperatures ranging from the mid-40s during nighttime, mid-70s during heat of the day, and not one drop of rain.
