Why "The Pickle"?
This is a destination run between the two stores. We threw around names and it was mentioned that the run was quite a "pickle", and the name stuck. The Fleet Feet Pickle was born.
How are we doing transportation?
You will be responsible for transporting your team members to and from each relay spot. We have mapped out the course to have safe locations for cars to pick up and drop off.
We will have 3 relay points:
- Mile 4.5 Kernodle Middle School
- Mile 9.75 Western Guilford High School
- Mile 13.5 Intersection of Gallimore Dairy Rd and Green Point Rd
Water stops will be located at all relay checkpoints and the following stops:
- Mile 3
- Mile 8
- Mile 14.75
What about transportation for the brave soul that runs the entire length of the race?
We will provide transportation back to the Greensboro store after the run for any runners who choose to go the entire distance.
What if we just have two people on our team?
Great! Teams can be comprised of 2 or 4 members, in addition to the solo runners. If you're part of a two person team, we would recommend having runner #1 go from the start to 9.75, and runner #2 runs from 9.75 to the finish.
Will the course be marked?
Yes! We will have Pickle arrows leading you down the course. We will also have a bicycle leading the way and following the rear.
