ETOX Students Compete in 187 Mile Ragnar Relay

On March 30-31 2007, current ETOX students Yong Jiang, Catherine Gibbons, Kelly Thrippleton and Mary Ann Rempel and former ETOX student Bjarte Furnes joined fellow graduate students from the UCR campus to form team UCR Tail Ends and compete in the Ragnar Relay Del Sol. The Del Sol is a 187-mile footrace that winds through the beautiful Sonoran desert in Arizona, beginning in Wickenburg and ending in Scottsdale. Despite losing one team member hours before the race, an extreme lack of sleep and minor injuries the team finished well ahead of their projected time. They finished in 27 hours and 10 minutes, placing a respectable 14th out of 32 in their division. All had a great time.
