NOTE from LISA: 'I' and 'me' in the message below refers to Randy Gehrke, who is organizing this great fundraiser. Please consider participating! This is a follow-up to yesterday's Blog entry: http://lisasmithbatchen.blogspot.com/2007/01/great-challenge-and-cause-to-support-in.html
Follow-up Message from Randy Gehrke:
I've received quite a bit of interest in this fundraiser/run. A couple of changes are in order…
First of all, it will be an international event so the official title is "The International 24 hour Treadmill Championships." There is interest abroad and that is awesome!
Next, there will be an additional category for those who want contribute but not run for 24 hours. This idea was actually suggested by several other runners and it will be an hour run at a 15 percent grade(I think that’s max on most treadmills) We'll go ahead and establish a world record for that during this event. And if anyone is going for and knows what the current world record is, I'd like to know what it is.
So, in brief summary:
Anywhere you like--
International 24 hour Treadmill Championships
Relay $25.00 per team member
Hour at 15% grade $25.00 per entrant
Again, this is a fundraiser but at the same time, if you would like to go for the record, do so. Thank you all.
