WHAT IT IS:
A team of runners Training and Competing on a %100 plant based diet with certain goal races in mind. The first will be the California International Marathon with a few tune-up races leading up to CIM.
OUR GOAL AND MISSION:
The Project objective is to support and promote a healthy vegan diet by using Athleticism as a means to show and educate others on the benefits of eating this way, and what it can do for our performance as an athlete. We are interested in taking all runners, even if not competitive, who are willing to commit to a Plant based diet by the end of the summer and keep it at least through the goal race day. For some runners this will be taken on as a challenge to see how well they perform with this lifestyle. For others the goal will be to continue training and competing on this diet and help show how well it works! For the rest, the mission will simply be to join our team to support the cause and be apart of the movement.
There will be a Sacramento-based weekly training group meet-up, once a week throughout the Summer and Fall, led by myself (Jed Soliz) if there are enough interested people.
California International Marathon is the goal race and we may or may not be able to get sponsorship for this, so participants must be willing to pay for there own race in need be. This is a very popular race and entries will fill up fast, so it is best to sign up as soon as possible. We are also planning on having Team Veg Racing or Tech Tee shirts. We are really going to try and get these comped, but again, we may have to distribute them out for a small fee for those interested in purchasing one.
There are a few tune-up races that I will be doing to get ready for the main event. Team Veg teammates are welcome to join me for any of these. So far they are; Forty Niner 10 miler run in Auburn on September 3rd, Tough Mudder on September 22nd, Run for Courage 5k on September 29th, Four Bridges Half Marathon on October 27th and Run to Feed the Hungry on Thanksgiving day, November 22nd. Additional races may be added at a later date.
Thanks for your interest in our team! We hope to see you out there!
A facebook page for this event will soon be up.
