2007 Great Midwest Relay
Friday June 8th, 2007
In its third year running participation in the
Great Midwest Relay
has swollen to 140 teams... a new record, up from the
teams listed in the 2006 official results. Teams consist of up to
members with a preset rotation of the
legs which make up the race course that stretches from Madison -to- Milwaukee -to- Chicago. Based upon predicted running pace teams are assigned to one of "
waves" and start on Friday from 7:00 am (first wave) through 4:00 pm (last wave). The plan is to set faster teams off behind slower teams such that all teams make it to the finish in Chicago by Saturday afternoon.
This was the second year that our
Greater Chicago Running Team
took on the challenge. Captained by Michael Davenport we split our
member, "Mixed Open" team into two groups...
1. Kevin O'Neil
2. Dave Cameron
3. Jason Doland
4. Michelle Thom
5. Bob Mitera
6. Bill Thom
7. Mark Polinko
8. Dan Martin
9. Dan Ewan
10. Jim Stein
11. Angie Paprocki
12. Michael Davenport
Having finished in
place overall in the 2006 event we had lofty goals and designs on bettering our position this time around. We were able to trim a full
minutes from our 2006 time... a great team accomplishment
Congratulations to all teams
