Thank you – Inaugural Spaceport America Relay Race

 

The Spaceport America Crew and our race directors Marc and Marianna Heon send a huge thank you to all of our runners and our state, county, municipal, law enforcement, emergency medical, volunteer, vendor and sponsoring partners!

What began at dawn last Saturday at the El Paso County Coliseum ended two days, two states, three counties, twenty municipalities and 180 miles later when twenty-four racing teams crossed the finish line on the Spaceway at Spaceport America in New Mexico on Sunday.

Bob Martin, KRQE the CBS-affiliated television station in Albuquerque’s Pilot Reporter covered the race and told this story:

“The goal of the inaugural Spaceport America Relay Race was not about competing for the best time – it was about team building, celebrating the spirit of human exploration and safety – similar to human spaceflight.”
