Garmin runners take on the Wild West


Startingline Garmin1 A team of 12 Garmin runners headed westward last Thursday, bound for Ft. Collins, Colorado, starting point of the 195-mile Wild West Relay. About 27 hours, 34 minutes later, our rugged runners hit Steamboat Springs, placing 17th among well over 100 teams. In the “flatlanders” category (consisting of team members who dwell at 2,500’ and below), the Garmin team was near the top. Our team, “Armed and Dangerous,” was aptly named for the legal weapons these Garminites wear — various styles of our Forerunner training devices. One Garmin runner and triathlete, Adam, said he shared his new Forerunner 310XT with another runner on the team. Despite running for 6 relay legs between them, Adam said the 310XT had at least 50% of its battery life left at the end of the race. A big bonus of the 310XT for ultrarunners and multisport athletes is that it carries a full 20 hours of battery life. Congrats to all the runners who finished in one piece. May your quads and calves quickly recover.
