The Run Fool will also take place on March 28th, but in Newport OR. This race is for a 2, 4 or 6 person team relay. It will be held at the DDLM Endurance Run course. This event is held the weekend prior to April Fool’s Day, sometimes even on April Fools (if falling on a Saturday). The course is a figure 8 course, made of two loops. The first loop is 1.05 miles, while the second is 1.55 miles. The race is measured by time, not distance. The time run is determined when the gun goes off. Teams will run anywhere from 6 to 12 hours. Times are put in a hat, starting with 6 hours and increments of 15 minutes after. It will be drawn one at a time, determining the time being ran. No one will know the time drawn until it happens. Everyone runs until the clock stops. There is only one rule in this relay, you cannot replace your teammate mid-race. Teammates do not have to keep any running sequence, and can exchange whenever. There will only be one team crowned as the FOOL.
