Yup it is after the new year and I am starting to get folks to think about Rocky V. The past two years this two person relay alleycat has been talk of the town. This is the hardest race that philly gives you every year. In the past there has been up to 35 or so teams battling out for who are the best team for 2 hours or more...
Here is the premise of the race. You have a team that consist of a runner and a sprinter. The sprinter will first start at the bottom of the art museum steps. They will then run up the steps to get their first package. They then go run down the steps and get on their bike and sprint to love park.
At this point they hand off their package to the runner of the team. The runner then goes and does the task they have to do. While the runner sprints back to the Art Museum Steps to get the next package. You can only have one package on you at a time. Hence why this race is one of the hardest of all philly races.
After you complete all the tasks for the race. The sprinter and runner then do a time trial from Love Park to Lemon Hill in Fairmount Park. After that we have a bunch of free beer and free bbq for both meat eaters and vegetarians.
In the past we have had sponsorships from the likes of R.E. Load, Chrome Bags, Bell's Bikes, Red Bull, MessNYC.net, Harolet Clothing, King Kog, Trackstar nyc, PABST, Outlaw printing, Jumpstart Printing (under a different name now) Stuart Leon, and many more. This year there will be hopefully more and more new sponsors.
Ok I like I said I wanted to get folks thinking about this. The date again is June 23rd. 2pm registration Art Museum Steps. $20 bucks for team. All proceeds go to the Philadelphia Bicycle Messenger Association. Last year we raised like 300 or so for the NACCC here in philly...
