New Northern Nevada Race - The Ruby Mountain Relay

This popped up in my email inbox a few days ago, and it looks cool enough that I have to share it. The Ruby Mountain Relay will take place August 3-4, 2012, running from Lamoille Canyon 184 miles to Wells, NV. Similar format to other relay races like Hood to Coast or the Reno/Tahoe Odyssey - 12 runners, 2 vans, 3 legs each.

The course starts in Lamoille Canyon and heads northeast towards Elko before turning south to skirt the edge of the Ruby Mountains. It crosses them at Harrison Pass and jogs south before turning north in between the mountains and the Ruby Lake Wildlife Refuge.  The course continues north all the way to Wells and the finish line.

If you're here in Northern Nevada and are into relays, this looks like an awesome time. If anyone out there is looking to put a team together, let me know - I'd be interested.
