JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO, Texas —
Registration for Joint Base San Antonio’s annual Rambler 120 is now open.
The fitness challenge designed to enhance camaraderie, is Oct. 5 with an estimated 7:30 a.m. start time at JBSA Recreation Park at Canyon Lake.
The race consists of a 22-mile bike ride, 6-mile run, 2-mile raft race and a mystery challenge. Contestants can start arriving at 5 a.m. to register and meet with team mates.
Participants can register in different categories. Either a four-person Xtreme team with at least one Department of Defense cardholder or an eight-person relay team with at least two DOD cardholders are available. Teams can be all active duty military. Any teams can be all male, all female or coed. Individuals may register and participate solo.
“People do it for fun or competition,” said David Guillory, a member of an eight-person team at last year’s event. “We did well and in the end we had an overwhelming sense of accomplishment.”
Katy Taylor, JBSA community programs and partnership specialist, emphasized the Rambler 120 was a unique event that fosters grit, camaraderie, and teamwork.
“The Army operates on a battle buddy mentality and Air Force is the wingman,” said Taylor. “You have to check on your team and make sure they are okay in all military branches.”
Early discounted registration is available until Sept. 13 with the registration deadline on Sept. 25. Register at http://bit.ly/rambler120
