On Friday March 10th, a group of 12 birds took off from the Santa Monica Pier to race for the title of fastest female team in The Speed Project - a 340 mile road relay from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. Known as team #Birdstrike, the women are one of the first female teams ever to toe the line of this extremely challenging route. Knowing apparel is a competitive advantage, and a key part of any racing strategy - we put together a collection of items designed to help them go the distance.
At 5am this morning, we took off from the Santa Monica pier to race for the title of fastest female team in The Speed Project - a 340 mile road relay from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. There are 12 of us - 6 runners and 6 crew - and we’re a mix of amateurs and pros connected by a love of adventure and belief in each other. This year is the first year an all-female team takes on the notoriously challenging course, and we’re proud to be a part of this female first.
