20 years ago, I was part of a team that was pulled together at the last minute to run the 1990 Hood to Coast Relay, a 1000 team, 200 mile journey from Mt Hood to the town of Seaside, Oregon where Lewis and Clark ended their journey. Teams are made up of 12 runners who run in order 1-12 an average of 6 miles each before repeating the order again and then again a third time. All runners average about 18 miles. The five time defending champions in 1990 were “The Killer Bees.” We named ourselves “Black Flag” with the expressed goal of exterminating the Killer Bees.
