2016 Flaming Foliage Relay

The Pickled Prostates ran their 3rd consecutive Flaming Foliage Relay on September 9-10, 2016.

Race results can be found here. 

Because the team only had 8 runners this year, it had to run in the non-competitive Helter Skelter division, where running order and number of runners is optional.

It was a tough race, only 8 Runners were able to run this year (5 dropping from last years team) and the team captain Craig Murray had the flu on race day and had to drop out.  This left 7 runners to run the 163 miles in 30 legs. Jeff stepped in and picked up 2 early legs Friday before heading back to Denver.  This left each runner doing 4 legs and Tim stepping up to do 5 legs, over 30 miles.

Despite all the challenges, the team was able to post the fastest time by 15 minutes and really pulled through for another relay.

Great job to all.  Welcome back alumni relay runners Rick Hornock, Scott Hajicek and Jeff Delaney.  And welcome to the club Bobby Radokovich, rookie of the year.
