Pettit INdoor Marathon relay

The Swifters sent three teams to Milwaukee this weekend for this year's Pettit Indoor Marathon Relay. In this unique event, each team of four ran a total of ninety-six laps of the indoor track at Pettit National Ice Center. Runners handed off the baton every two laps (880m), each running approx six and a half miles when all was said and done.

It was a brisk and dry 55 degrees in the rink, and it felt even colder! All three teams placed in their respective divisions! Everyone had a blast and we're already looking forward to next year. Check out the full gallery.
