Race report

Beat The Blerch 2020 was a virtual race inspired by this comic about running, written by The Oatmeal. 100% of the race fees went to charities. Although the race distance is 13.1 miles, I hiked 17 miles in the moutains in Flagstaff, AZ. The website does not have a results page - racers recorded their own times and sent directly to the organizers.I have no idea where I placed, so took my best guess.

Race report

Conditions were the roughest in the race’s 8 year history, according to the race director, Josh Green. Water temp was 64F, winds were gusting 15+mph, waves at times were 3-4’ with white caps. It was difficult to site the finish since the 20’ red inflatable finish line arch had blown over early in the race, so ultimately I swam 7 miles rather than 6.2.

Race report

The distance was changed from 4.4 miles to 2.2 the day before the race, due to hazardous marine conditions. Water temp was low 70s. I swam skins, although the race directors didn’t include a non-wetsuit category this year. Tough swim!
