We sent twelve of our fast and furious Standing Stone employees to the Wild Rogue Relay last weekend, and our runners had a fantastic time! Thirty-six legs and 213 miles later, Standing Stone’s “Slaughterhouse Twelve” came in 9th place out of 35 12-person teams. Congrats to all our awesome runners!
The course ran along the Wild and Scenic Rogue River from the Applegate to Gold Beach, OR. Course legs varied between 3.5 and 8.9 miles, with all twelve runners doing three legs each. The trail was filled with significant elevation gain and loss, with the highest peak at 3,900 feet and the finish line at sea level.
The following members of Standing Stone’s Slaughterhouse Twelve (team name in honor of our brewery’s chicken processing facility in which we bring our poultry from farm to kitchen) came in at a total time of 30 hours and 27 minutes, averaging an 8.5 minute-mile overall:

To tap into even more fun for the event, Standing Stone sponsored the race with a free beer for runners and volunteers at the finish line in Gold Beach. What better way to end 213 miles of running, after all? Check out the video on Facebook of our final runner coming in to the Curry County Fairgrounds (the runner in the chicken headdress is David), with the rest of our team members chasing him in.
Thank you Lithia Nissan for sponsoring and hosting the Wild Rogue Relay – we had a blast and you can count us in for 2014’s event. Happy running everyone!
