Even though the Icebreaker Indoor Marathon is organized and sponsored by InStep Running & Walking Centers, we would like to give a loud shout out to one of our worthy competitors, Fleet Feet Sports of Brookfield, for entering 12 teams in the Marathon Relay. We issued a challenge to local running stores to put teams in the relay and Fleet Feet answered that challenge big-time. Thanks to Lauri and Rusty Sergent, the owners of Fleet Feet, for supporting the relay. We wish your teams the best of luck......as long as they don't beat any of the InStep teams.
We also have a team entered by Berkeley Running Company in Madison, and expect teams from Badgerland Running Co. in Lake Geneva and Rodiez's in West Allis. These teams will be competing in the Running Store Challenge, which is a traveling trophy that will be awarded to the fastest team from one of the area specialty running stores.
There are still plenty of spots left for teams in the Marathon Relay, which promised to be one of the most unique and exciting events of the weekend. Teams of 2 to 4 runners will run 26.2 miles around the Pettit Center track. The race will feature a "tag team format" where teams can switch runners as often as possible. To register, click here.
