Mapping the world, one waxy strand at a time…

Movin’ On Up

Remember the race that Brent and I put on earlier this year?  The 6-hour sprint adventure race that we dedicated 60 hours of our spring to designing?

Who could forget our Clown Boats?

Well, because we don’t have enough to occupy our times these days (I hope that dripping sarcasm makes its way across the blogosphere), we’ve decided to up the ante.

A couple weeks ago, we signed on to design and direct our first 24+ hour race, the GOALS ARA Cradle of Liberty, to be held in June or July of 2012.

We spent last Friday doing some preliminary scouting and have come up with a rough course that we’re both pretty jazzed about.

I can’t say much without giving away closely guarded race secrets (seriously – when we borrowed maps from a friend, I had to ask for a whole stack so she wouldn’t know which we were using), but I will tell you that Brent and I are gearing up for some serious work over the next several months.

There will be routes to explore, parks to visit, permits to secure, maps to build, checkpoints to place, sections to vet, volunteers to line up, and a whole lot more that I can’t begin to anticipate yet.

When all is said and done, we’ll hopefully be set to roll out a seriously epic adventure in eastern PA.

Who’s in?

    I love the covert ops and secrecy! It makes it so much more exciting!

    Oh, man…I wonder what my chances are of dragging my family to PA (or wherever) so I can abandon them for 24 hours? And now I’m off to read that post you linked, because I’ve never read it.

    This is SO COOL! I can’t be there because of the whole having a baby in May thing, but I can’t wait to hear about it!

    Sounds like something Super Kate needs to sign up for, she’s always up for an endurance adventure….I’m just having a hard time convincing her the Leadville 100 is a good thing! 🙂

    At this point I will 63% commit to being there in one form or another.

    Sounds exciting! I can always be a volunteer on the sidelines!! I love to keep reading your blog about all of the adventures you and Brent are taking!

    That’s sure a tall order! Don’t be too rough!! I’m nowhere near that area, but sounds like fun!
