I have my course assignments for The Relay 2006 coming up in a couple weeks. Two hard and one easy, making for 4th most difficult out of the 12 runner team! 199 miles from Calistoga to Santa Cruz... I'll be on Team Desperately Seeking Santa Cruz, and we'll be running to raise money and awareness for organ donation. If you're in the area on April 8 or 9, be sure to come and cheer! (Though I think for leg #23, I'll be running sometime overnight).
My first leg is #11 through Petaluma in Sonoma County. I start at the high school, and then head out and up along the Point Reyes-Petaluma Road.
Next is leg #23 along Skyline Boulevard just south of San Francisco, from San Bruno hugging the San Andreas faultline all the way to Crystal Springs Reservoir at the Half Moon Bay exit at I-280 and Route 92 by Cañada Road.
My final leg, #35 goes right by UC Santa Cruz, from the town of Felton, up near the redwoods, right down along the Empire Grade, where Liam will pick up the final leg into Santa Cruz.
