Thanks to all who participated in the 2018 edition of our club predicted-time walk, about the 25th time that it has been held ranging from 3K to 5K. Thanks also to the race assistants, Karen Swisher and Fred Adams and to all who brought the good eats and helped set up and clean up. We finally were able to get this 2018 version of the Be-A-Walker completed after a one-month delay and look forward to continuing this tradition next year (with a little less moisture from Mother Nature). Special congratulations to Tom Oakes who tied the all-time record for prediction.

Brew to Brew Relay 43 miles

April 8, 2018 Kansas City to Lawrence

Team – Heartland Hipsters

Eight hardy Heartland Race Walkers combined to create one team for the 2018 Brew to Brew Race. The cold freezing temperatures and windy, wet weather conditions served up rain sleet and snow at times making for a most challenging day on the course. Martha McCarter and Marcie Reyelts stepped up as team co-captains and did a great job with team communication and coordinating leg assignments. Martha McCarter did an excellent job recording and reporting the results on the chart provided.Team members were all Brew to Brew veterans. A great day of team fun, hardiness and survival was capped off with our traditional celebration at the Mad Greek Restaurant in Lawrence.
