What people are saying about The Stampede: Team Yard Beer
Recently we had the pleasure to get some feedback from a team that ran in our inaugural race, The Stampede. We wanted to share that with you because this team, Team Yard Beer, was so fun not only for us but for all the participants. They embody what we want our races to be about. Fun, Family and Friends.
Stampede: Now team Yard Beer was one of our favorite teams! You guys were there at the finish line cheering everyone on for the majority of the day on Saturday. What made you decide to stick around?
Team Yard Beer: We decided to stick around because it was a gorgeous day and it was fun to watch others come down the waterslide and into the finish line. Our typical social activity is drinking beer in someone’s yard (hence our team name) so this was just a variation of that. It also helped that Booty’s Food Truck was around and friendly people were around.
Stampede: It was pretty obvious that your team has known each other for a good amount of time. Were you new to adventure racing or have you done these before? How does The Stampede compare?
Team Yard Beer: I do believe I am the only one from the group that had done adventure racing before, but only once. The one I did was a Tough Mudder, which was more challenging. The Stampede, by contrast, was more about the fun than the physically challenging.
Stampede: On the course we had a wide variety of obstacles. Which were your favorites and why?
Team Yard Beer: As a group, we discussed this in detail last weekend. We all liked the Hay/tires, climbing the walls and the water slide best. Our least favorites were the pond buckets and the car.
Stampede: What are you looking forward to for Stampede 2013?
Team Yard Beer: We all want to recruit more people for our team and stay longer for the concert and perhaps even camp.
Stampede: If you could design an obstacle for Stampede 2013 what would it look like or how would it work?
Team Yard Beer: I loved the course you all designed for the inaugural event. A 5K is the perfect length. The only suggestions we have are to add one or two more obstacles in some of the longer running stretches.
Stampede: Thanks so much for your help gals!
