Enties open for unique 'leapfrog' Ride/Run race

Tuesday, June 17, 2003

Entry forms for the 24th annual Ride-Run competition are now available for interested athletes.

Entry forms are available at Sportsman's and at the Perry Law Office.

The race will be held Friday, July 4 at 7:30 a.m. starting at the intersection of Lakeshore Drive and Lake Avenue in Storm Lake. The route is around Storm Lake with water stops along the route. Race day registration is from 7-7:20 a.m.

Entry fee is $20 per team in advance (postmarked by June 27) or $25 after June 27 until the day of the race. Overall winners will receive plaques with medals for the top three finishers in each category. All competitors will receive t-shirts.

Athletes compete in teams of two with one bicycle per team. One team member begins the race on the bicycle while the second begins running the route. The bicycle is left for the second teammate to pick up and eventually pass their now running teammate. The teams continue in this leapfrog fashion until both members of the team finish the eleven-mile course together.

This race is limited to the first 100 teams.
