Team Ragged Glory places 7th overall in the 11th Indianapolis AR

Forty nine teams braved the rain to race the 11th annual Indianapolis Adventure Race on September 11, 2010. The event that Greg Arnold started has grown into a tradition of adventure racing excellence that also generates thousands of dollars in charitable donations.

Dave Tanner, Nancy Gawrys, and me (Doug Theis) raced together, representing Team Ragged Glory for the 10th consecutive year for this even.. Indiana University’s Bradford Woods property in Martinsville, Indiana was the place. The race had plenty of challenges for a sprint: flatwater paddling, hike-a-boat, river paddling, paint ball, a tough couple of bike sections, and a beautiful orienteering section on foot in the Bradford Woods deep stuff. The last checkpoint had us paddle boarding, and it was great fun.

Thanks to Nancy and Dave for a great race. We finished 7th overall and 4th in the coed division. Ryan Burke handled the transition to race director seamlessly. Thanks to the volunteers, and congrats to the Tenacious Lemmings, John McInnes, Mike Garrison, and Jayne Prater for a big win.
