50km – that’s how far some of us will run, walk, hike and maybe even skip a bit on September 18th as we rise to the 2010 Title Nine Company Challenge.  At least once a year T9 rallies behind an epic physical challenge encouraging all staff to participate by providing top notch physical training, motivation and financial support for race fees.  Past Challenges have included a 24 hour relay run, the New York City Marathon, Barb’s Race & Big Kahuna ½ Iron Man Triathlons, the Marin Century Ride and a 90 day fitness challenge with Crossfit  Oakland. This year we’re training for an ultramarathon trail run through the beautiful California redwoods!

Not all of us will run the full 50k, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be rising to the Challenge! Some of us are running the 10km, 20km and 30km legs of the race and there may even be a group of non-runners hiking part of the trail.  It’s all about getting off the sidelines and into the game no matter how far or fast it takes you.

If you love a good challenge as much as we do, join us out on the trail – we’d love to see you!  If you can’t make the trail run then be sure to join us at our 1st annual San Francisco Bay T9K on November 7thCindy Olivarri, our coach for the ultra, has developed a T9K training schedule to get you up and running lickety-split. The first training run in the schedule is on September 1st so get ready, get set and MOVE IT!
