WE MADE IT!

At approximately 2:26pm on 6.08.19, our Relay came to an end when we reached our final destination

The Roanoke River LightHouse, Edenton, NC

Thanks to all our supporters, sponsors and new friends along the way! Can’t wait to do this again next year!

What This Is

On June 6th, 12 members of the Trottin’ Oxen Run club will embark on a running adventure like no other.

Starting at 7:00 am on Thursday, June 6th, we will attempt a relay from the White House in Washington, D.C. to the Roanoke River Lighthouse in Edenton, NC – a distance of 343 miles.

What makes this unique is The White House To LightHouse Relay was created by runners looking to push the boundaries of what an athletic event can be. Countless hours have gone into developing our idea, planning the route, mitigating risks and obtaining sponsors.

Our plan is to document the entire experience on social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) so that everyone can follow along. Please follow us on our adventure. If nothing else, keeping 12 people crammed into a tight space for over 72 hours will make for some amusing YouTube videos.

How We're Planning To Get There

Download

Hours of planning have gone into selecting our route. Most of the journey will follow the East Coast Greenway, a 3,000-mile bike and walking route linking Maine to Florida. Fortunately, we will only be covering 343 miles of it from Washington D.C to Edenton, NC. But planning can only do so much. We will encounter situations that we will have to solve on the fly.

Luckily we are prepared!

We will have a lead RV with a follow vehicle supporting the runner(s), always on the move. We’re using the latest GPS tech to track our movements and post to this website for real-time location updates. If you’re anywhere on the route and want to run with us – you are more than welcome! Everyone knows runners hate running alone!

  • What’s harder than trying to get all 24 WH2LH 2.0 runners together?  A 7-10 split.  Luckily we’re better at team building than bowling. .

  • The gauntlet was thrown down and 24 Badass Runners have accepted the challenge. WH2LH 2.0 won’t be sanctioned, it will be void of an official finishers shirt and no prizes will be awarded. What each Runner will walk away with, if they’re lucky, is the satisfaction of having completed an epic running adventure that tested their endurance and exceeded the boundaries of their own limitations. Oh and,....one hell of a story to tell! Stay tuned, additional information will drop as the event gets closer. .

  • The New G, The Oh Geez and the Old G || No matter what the crazy idea, you know where to turn for support. Whether you’re setting goals or achieving them, we’re always right by your side. When you’ve had a rough day/week and you just need to grab a drink, there will be one waiting for you. If you need a listening ear, we’re the first one you message/call. When you just want to run, your #runningbuddies simply ask “How many miles?” 🏃🏼‍♂️🏃🏻‍♂️🏃🏻‍♀️And when you occasionally act a fool, we set you straight. || Thank you for always having my back and being by my side. ❤️ The StoneCutters

  • The rest of the day won’t be able to compete with my nice, cool #sexyPace #run along Lake Union, followed by a visit to Top Pot Doughnuts.
  • Don’t mind @indigosplinter 💪🏻👀 He got his swoll on this morning and couldn’t help admiring the view 🤣 .

  • Finally made the decision to see what @that_gradstudentlife has been raving about for the past year. This morning I tried my first @redeffect_fairfax class and aside from having my arse kicked, I loved it. Loved it so much that I committed to taking more classes over the next month. 
Looking forward to seeing what high intensity interval training does for my overall fitness and how the infrared saunas impact my marathon training recovery.
