Urban Survival Chick will be at the Baker 2 Vegas Run April 13-14, 2013!!

It is time for the annual Baker to Vegas Challenge Cup Relay!  This big racing event has been called “The longest law enforcement foot pursuit in the world.”  It is a big fundraising effort for the training programs led by the Los Angeles Police Revolver and Athletic Club.

The race happens this April 13-14, 2013 and goes from Baker, CA all the way to Las Vegas, NV.  It covers 120 miles, 20 stages, and has over 8,000 runners from all over the globe competing to be the fastest team. 

Actually all these teams are in pretty good shape, so it is safe to say you don’t want to start trouble in their hood because they will chase you, track you down, and catch you without even breaking a sweat!

This is last year’s group picture with my team from the Malibu Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station.

The rows are not perfectly straight but yours truly is standing in what I would call the 3rd row about 5 people in form the right hand side.  I am standing next to the handsome Mexican guy with the beard.

The most important reason for being at the race is to make sure all the runners and event staff are safe and healthy.  These determined men and women run along the highway in the desert heat, under the sun, against the wind, and over challenging terrain. 

The race legs don’t always have cell phone reception so the race team members set up radio antennas so we can communicate with each other using our radios.  Over 200 running teams and 20,000 volunteers come together to make this event happen.

I use my HAM radio to help coordinate the exchange of the baton between runners at each stage of the race and communicate the runners’ progress to our command center.  

If you don’t have something like a Baker To Vegas Challenge Cup Relay Race in your area look for another law enforcement organization you can support.  They do really important work for our communities.

If you are looking to get your HAM Radio License and you are in Southern California I have a great resource for you.  Just send a message to Mary@UrbanSurvivalChick.com and I can get you details for the next class.
