200 Miles Divided By 12 Friends = Good Times in the South

By Jake Lynch

I am seriously thinking about putting a team together for the Dixie200. This thing sounds awesome: 200 miles split among a group of your friends, an overnight relay run along two of America's most scenic rail-trails - the Silver Comet and Chief Ladiga trails from Atlanta, Ga., to Birmingham, Ala.

Got a crew of pals that are pretty fit and always willing to do something inappropriately extreme but undoubtedly memorable? Then the Dixie200 was made for you. Don't let the '200' part scare you - with a team of 12, each runner will run about the equivalent of a half-marathon. Plus, the whole spirit of the thing looks kinda silly and fun. (See photo).

The good news is, you've got all fall and winter to train - the race takes off from Atlanta on March 22, 2013.

For more information, visit www.dixie200.com. See you there. Maybe.
