BNSF Velocity’s Employees Are Faster Than You

The results of the SMU Cox Corporate Relay Challenged, which raised $30,000 for Texas Scottish Rite Hospital, were announced today (although, if you go to the winner’s website, you’ll see they knew the results just a few days after the race). Anywho, the winning team, coming in at two hours, 43 minutes, and 52 seconds (that’s a pace of 6:14 per mile), was BNSF Velocity. Second place goes to Barrel Makers. Third was Sewell 1. Also, the oldest Corporate Team was Sewell 13, with an average age of 57.2. The youngest corporate team winner was Sewell 9, with an average age of 21.6. I wonder if there’s a running portion during the interview process with Sewell.
