The King County Bureaufasts completed their third Ragnar Relay this month, coming in fifth place overall in the Corporate Division. The 200-mile relay race is always a test of determination for your King County runners, but this year proved to be even tougher than usual as the team faced very hot temperatures, an injury during the race, and other challenges. Nonetheless, the Bureaufasts endured and still managed a respectable time and a good number of “road kills” for passing other teams on the course that winds from the Peace Arch in Blaine to Whidbey Island. The team is already looking forward to next year’s race! Are you? Let me know if you’re interested in joining us.
