WHEN?
Sunday 14 October 2012 @ 1pm

WHERE?
Posse Grounds Park
525 Posse Ground Rd.
Sedona, AZ 86336
(Packet pick-up will be available at Sedona Running Company on Saturday 13 October 2012 from 10am until 7pm or on race day at Posse Grounds Park).

WHAT?
Wife carry.

WAIT...WHAT?!?!?
That's right, a wife carry. Google it, you'll see. It's a real thing. You will carry your partner over a 253.5 meter course that contains a mud pit, a sand pile, and hay bales. The fastest couple wins.

WHO?
This event is produced by a partnership between Sedona Running Company and Sedona Parks & Recreation. It will be limited to the first 35 couples who register online. You may register the day of the event ONLY if there is space available (NOTE: there won't be any space available on race day because this is the coolest thing to hit Sedona since the Chamber of Commerce started telling people that vortexes exist so they could get people from Scottsdale here to buy tours and tshirts). Registration prior to 15 September 2012 is $35 per couple. Registration after that will be $40 per couple. Think of it as an investment in your relationship.

RULES
1. All participants must have fun...or at least create the appearance that they are having fun.
2. All participants must be at least 18 years of age.
3. Teams must be comprised of 1 male and 1 female.
4. Team members are not required to be married to each other (or someone else).
5. The male can carry the female or the female can carry the male. The carrier and the carryee (that's not really a word) cannot change positions during the event.
6. The carrying method will be determined by each team.
7. The carryee (there's that fake word again) must wear a helmet for the entire event.
8. Each team will run the course twice. The best time for each trial will be used as the final time. The team may opt out of one of the trials if they choose. You may be heckled if you choose to opt out.
9. The carryee must weigh at least 105 pounds...anyone weighing less than that will have to wear a weighted backpack that increases their weight to 105 pounds (For Canadians - I don't know that that equals in kilograms because I used to cut math class a lot when they were covering measurement conversions...I didn't find it necessary to attend since it only takes a few seconds to learn your conversions because, well, your system is just better. So now I'm a grown adult who still doesn't know how many ounces in a gallon or acres in a fortnight).
10. There will probably be more rules, but I can't think of any right now. Besides, adding rules later will let me use my new bullhorn more.
