Week 9 Results

(click on map to enlarge)

WOW! Some teams took advantage of the no-mile limit this week and sped across the country. Greased Lightning (6305) surpassed She-Power (6120) for the lead! Interestingly, they made it to Prairie du Chien, WI. This is Monica's hometown and she's the captain of the team. What a great coincidence! She-Power is still in Iowa just passing through Des Moines, trying to catch up with the new leader. Team Alpha (5410) barely retained their 3rd place spot as The Atalantas (5410) kicked it in high gear and almost surpassed them. Hopefully Team Alpha and Team Atalantas keep up the fight as we go into this last week of the challenge. Losing a little steam this week, The Racing Rhetoricians (4560) are just outside of Las Vegas; hopefully they don't get slowed down by the ring of the slot machines! Finally, Git 'er Done (3075) is chugging along nicely. They've made it into Texas and will hopefully soar over to Arizona this coming week.

Last week, gang! Next week we'll crown some team the winner!! It's only 1400-ish miles away for Greased Lightning. Given they had almost 900 miles this week, it's not unreasonable to think they could make it all the way back to RI!

Week 8 Results

(click on map to enlarge)

After 2 months of intense racing, we're only 2 weeks away from a crowned winner. This week teams worked hard and improved their standings! She-Power has continued to hold its lead over Greased Lightning, but just barely! She-Power made it to the Nebraska border this week, while Greased Lightning is just a few miles behind in Laramie, Wyoming! Team Alpha, the Atalantas, and the Racing Rhetoricans are all vying for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th spots. This week, Team Alpha made it all the way to the Mojave National Preserve. Hopefully they don't spend too much time enjoying the gorgeous scenery. Not far behind are the Atalantas who are in Victorville, CA, and working hard to keep up are the Racing Rhetoricans, who are just outside of Riverside, CA. Get 'er Done must be loving the midwest because they've been hanging out there for the last few weeks. Right now, they are just about 50 miles outside Tulsa (Betsy's hometown!). Hopefully next week, they'll pass right through OK and push their way into Texas!

Only 2 weeks left of this fierce competition! Keep racing your hearts out! Next week, there are no limits on how many miles a team can go, so be sure to count every mile!

Week 7 Results

(click on map to enlarge)

Update: Due to a math miscalculation, we have a shift in the standings. It seems ShePower is still on top with 4875 miles, but Greased Lightning is really close behind with 4737.5 miles! Less than 14 real-life miles separate these two teams! It's still anyone's race!

Wow! You've all been amazing the last two weeks. I'm back from vacation (amazing!) and impressed with all the teams!

In the last two weeks, Greased Lightning has regained the lead and is just outside Provo, UT. They completed 4917.5 miles and is more than 1/2 way to the finish line! But don't discount She-Power! They are not far behind in Filmore, UT. They've covered 4875 miles and don't show signs of slowing down. In the last two weeks, Alpha has also gained the lead over the racing rhetoricians! They're outside of Victorville, CA (after covering 4100 miles!) while the Racing Rhetoricians are on their way to Lake Havasu. The Atalantas had a clerical error, resulting in a 100 mile gain! They're not far behind the RR as they stop in Flagstaff, AZ for the night. Last, but not least for sure, Git 'er Done is not far from Betsy's hometown of Tulsa, OK. They're just outside of Joplin as they work their way through the midwest.

We only have a few weeks left of the competition! This is the last week we have any mile restrictions! So work hard to reach your goals!!
