On Saturday July 26, 6 local ultrarunners will be joining up as Team John M Potter, MD, and attempting to cover at least 160 miles in 24 hours to raise money as part of the Relay for Life — the signature event for the American Cancer Society. John’s brother-in-law, Bill Ramsey is an accomplished runner, who has 10 finishes at the Angeles Crest 100 and several sub-24 hour buckles at Western States. Along with Bill, I am privileged to have the company of Robert Baird, Robert Schipsi, Kyle Hoang, and Calvin Mulder — each of them also possessing notable running portfolios themselves.
At Relay, people from within the community gather to celebrate survivors, remember those lost to cancer, and to fight back against this disease. Please help support our cause by donating a few dollars, and/or coming out in person to run or walk a few laps with us.
Here’s our schedule:
1. Robert Baird 8:00 am – 12:00 pm
2. Bill Ramsey 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
3. Robert Schipsi 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm
4. Kyle Hoang 8:00 pm – 12:00 am
5. Calvin Mulder 12:00 am – 4:00 am
6. Andy Kumeda 4:00 am – 8:00 am
Here’s my account from last year — this year, I will not be doing any trail maintenance beforehand, but am running another 100 miler the weekend before.
Oh yeah, best of luck to everyone running Hardrock this weekend.
