QuaranTime Enduro-Goof Race and Extravaganza!

Join other NUHOCers in a race to be completed indecently but celebrated together.

Dates are flexible, do the legs whenever you are available. You can sign up as a team or as an individual! To sign up, just email VP Trips Ian Carver at carver.i@husky.neu.edu and he’ll provide all of the encouragement you need to finish. Remember to respect social distance guidelines in your area! 

The race will have 4 legs:
1) Bike 15 miles
2) Hike the nearest mountain (or hill, enough times to equal the elevation of your mountain of choice). This will be difficult to time between all the different mountains sooo please make sure that you climb and descend at least 2000 feet.
3) Trail run 5 miles (can be in your backyard! please don’t choose a crowded trail)
4) Half a mile of whatever form of creative transport you choose: pushing yourself in a rolling office chair, riding in a wheelbarrow, somersaulting, cartwheeling, walking on your hands, etc. 
5) Submit at least one (1) neat photo on each leg of the trip.

As a bonus, the team who submits the most photos of different animal species they found during their travels will receive 25% off their time. 

Lollygagging and other tomfoolery are encouraged, so don’t let the timed aspect bring you down – special bragging rights are reserved for the team with the weirdest method of transport and goofiest photos.
Record your (or your team members’) time for each leg individually and send them to Ian (still at carver.i@husky.neu.edu). We’ll email out the rankings (and standout wildlife photos) once it’s done so that all can collect bragging rights. Submit your times by midnight Sunday or you’ll be left out of the standings. 

Get after it!
