Intrigued by the AOR but not sure about the whole thing? Sure about the whole thing, but not able to get 12 friends to commit to an overnight adventure? Or maybe it's homecoming. Or prom. For your kids, not you!
Well, here's the resolution to your conundrum!
The AOROne is a one day relay race of about 76 mores, give or take. It is comprised of the last 12 legs of the AOR. Teams of four or six run the 12 legs starting in the very early morning and finishing with the teams who have run the full relay. Depending upon your team's pace, you might start at 3:00 AM or maybe at 5:00 AM. Either way, you will start at transition 24, which is at the Bavarian Inn in Sheperdstown, WV. Now, it's up to you whether you want to take part in the World Famous Boy Scouts Pancake Breakfast at the Bavarian Inn before you even run :) We won't tell!
The American Odyssey Relay Ambassador is a unique breed of runner who enjoys the camaraderie of other runners in somewhat malodorous close quarters yet also enjoys running alone in a beautiful setting. The AORA can usually be spotted escaping reality by jumping headlong into any adventure involving teammates and running. Most importantly, the AORA, when asked, "What is the greatest running relay event ever?" answers with heartfelt exuberance, "The American Odyssey Relay, of course!"
