Summer makes debut with Sawtooth Relay

Playing leap frog from Stanley to Ketchum

Wet, foggy, cool and drizzly, it wasn’t the nicest day to officially start the summer of 2002.

But the 71 six-member teams in Saturday’s 11th annual Sawtooth Relay agreed that it was an awesome team effort and experience, leap-frogging from Stanley to Ketchum.

About 430 people completed Saturday’s 61.9-mile Sawtooth Relay that traveled from Stanley to Ketchum along State Highway 75.

Race organizer Terry Hoebelheinrich said the non-profit event benefited the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation and Idaho Donor Network. Team entry fee was $240.

The first wave of walkers and runners left Stanley Saturday at 4 a.m.—with the final wave leaving at 9 a.m. The fastest finishing time of the day was six hours and 10 minutes.

Members of each team completed 12 legs averaging five miles in length, walking or running.

The different legs were categorized from "very hard," the 5.35-mile climb of Galena Summit and 6.02-mile descent, to "very easy," the 2.63-mile stretch from Hulen Meadows to the finish line at Atkinson Park. Most of the legs in the Wood River drainage were "moderate."

Here are the final results and, as you can see, the Wood River Valley had some top teams in the outcome:

· Overall: 1—Bandanna "B", men’s division, (Boise) 6.10:04. 2—Bowl Cut Powers, men’s division, (Boise) 6.39:42. 3—Capital, high school division, (Boise) 6.50:40.

· Women’s: 1—Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (Ketchum) 7.25:54. 2—Spit, Sweat & Cheers (Twin Falls) 8.37:14. 3—Ordinance 199 (Ketchum) 8.39:33.
