Form a 3-member relay team with blueseventy racing members to take on the (virtual) Relay Race Challenge. As a team you must complete the equivalent of an Olympic distance triathlon – a 1500 meter swim, a 24.8 mile (40K) bike, and a 6.2 mile (10K) run. One member will be responsible for each leg of the race, and your combined total time will rank you against other blueseventy racing Relay Race Challenge teams.
*BY PARTICIPATING YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT SWIMMING, CYCLING, AND RUNNING ARE INHERENTLY DANGEROUS ACTIVITIES AND THAT ORGANIZERS ARE NOT LIABLE FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THIS CHALLENGE OR SPORTS IN ANY WAY.*
1) Recruit your team – You are responsible for forming your team! You will also need to choose a team name.
2) Race your segment – You have the entire month of December to complete your segment and submit results. Given this is a virtual race we will allow treadmill runs and indoor rides, assuming you have the appropriate gadgets to measure time and distance.
3) Submit your results – 3rd party scoring will be hosted by RunSignup. Each member should submit their own result for their own leg of the race. After at least 1 member on the team has submitted a result your team will be ranked on the Team Results page. Distance and time will accumulate as the remaining members submit their results.
You can submit results by going to the Challenge website, choosing Results tab, and selecting submit virtual results. Here’s a how-to, too: https://runsignup.com/Race/CoronavirusforParticipants/Page-7
4) Share updates along the way – Since we can’t be on the same race course to cheer each other on, please share your virtual experience in our team Facebook group! Extra kudos (again) if you race in your team kit!
The team with the fastest combined relay time will be granted bragging rights as "champions of the inaugural blueseventy racing virtual Relay Race Challenge."
Everyone who participates in the team challenge by submitting a result by December 31 will be entered into a random drawing for a prize from our team partner, AxGen Sports Genetics. One name will be selected to win a DNA test kit. With this test kit you get a specific and research-backed analysis of your genetic risk for sports injuries. How cool is that?! www.axgen.us
**FYI, extra bonus for everyone: From today until 12/25 our regular team discount on axgen.us is boosted to 30% with code BLUESEVENTY2020. (If you choose to buy a kit now and end up winning the random drawing for the team challenge, AxGen will reimburse you for your test kit.)
