When the first ride and tie was organized, back in 1971, to promote Levi Strauss of all things, it involved two trail runners and a horse, with the team members alternating running and riding over the lengthy mountain course. Runner and rider made the decision when to switch on their own, depending upon the terrain and the strengths of each participant. While ride and ties, two runners and a horse, are still offered, the two runners and a mountain bike option is now also becoming more popular.
Our Suffer Better Ride ‘n Tie is of the Run & Mountain Bike variety; we just don’t know that many horses. And rather than have the team determine when and where the transitions take place, we will have designated transition spots, where the runner switches to the bike and the rider becomes the runner. Each segment will be approximately 5 miles, the total course measuring 20 miles, with 3 distinct transition points. The team will start together and finish only when both the runner and rider cross the final finish line. The Race is May 15th. Read more
