Check Out Our New Website

Our website helps keep veteran teammates, novice teammates, potential and current sponsors, and friends, fans, and family informed of our goals and accomplishments.

It was time for an upgrade.  Our old template was badly mangled when Google Applications transferred all of our website to Google Sites.  Google Sites offers far better formatting options.  I can still either use html or WYSIWYG when making website changes.  This allows me to use WYSIWYG-type very quick changes while waiting for a chamber to pump down in lab, an electron-beam lithography write to finish, or to sit down and carefully make a broader spectrum of changes directly using html.

The purpose of our website is to:
  • Recruit from our pool of runners
  • Recruit new team members
  • Inform current team members of runner assignments, travel plans, tentative budgets, and long-term race plans
  • Keep friends, family, and fans informed of our goals and accomplishments
  • Allow other relay teams to stay up-to-date with our plans
  • Dazzle potential sponsors
  • Keep sponsors informed of our goals and accomplishments
  • Product reviews from our pool of runners (future goal)
  • We only recruit sponsors whose product has been vital to at least one of us.  We aim to pass along these tips and tricks to the general running community
