With running shoes in hand, a group of 12 Swinerton employees from the San Francisco and San Diego offices ventured to Huntington Beach, California to embark on the 30-hour, 200-mile Ragnar Relay to San Diego, California. The Ragnar Relay is not only enjoyable, but the proceeds directly support the Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center.
The race started mid-morning with the sun beating down on the team as they ran down the beach and inland through local communities. The weather was beautiful, even with a little heat wave in the middle of the first day. The vans (split between men and women) tag-teamed the whole way down the coast, finishing up along the beautiful shoreline of La Jolla, Pacific Beach, and Mission Bay with the finish line on Coronado Island. Out of the 42 other corporate mixed teams that participated, Swinerton came in seventh place…just minutes from grabbing fourth place.
Great job team!
