My girlfriend and I will be coming up from Providence for the race. First time, definitely looking forward to it. Is there generally any order with co-ed teams regarding who runs which leg or is it more random? Do more men do one event as opposed to another? We'd like to be on the same page with the majority of team preferences if possible. I was thinking her, me, her me for run, bike, run, bike. Any thoughts? Thanks, Wally.

Generally you got it right. The Mountain bike leg is the most difficult and you should put your best mountain biker there. An inexperienced mountain biker will lose you the most amount of time.

We have had it both ways though, Some Co-eds have a runner and biker. That eliminates transition times a bit as you only have to do 2 chip swaps as opposed to 3.

I think only 1 duo team has done it with the first athlete doing Road run and Mountain bike, and second doing road bike and trail run.

Either way, your guaranteed a challenge and a heck of a lot of fun.

FYI the race is run, bike, bike, run you indicated the order differently.

Like PJ said most teams will allocate athletes to their strength events, runners do the running, bikers do the biking. I agree with PJ about the mtb and I would add both the trail events are harder then the road events. I have and will be racing it solo and the last 3.5 mile trail run is by far the most difficult leg for me but racing as a team you might find it different.
