2007 Assorted Nuts on YouTube

The Great River Relay. Think of it as a 207-mile party with 12 best friends. Teams of 12 run along the world-famous Mississippi River as they rock out to live bands, enjoy the wacky participant costumes and antics, and make life-long friends with teammates and competitors. The party follows the Great River Road starting in LaCrosse, Wisconsin and ends in St. Paul Minnesota. Each team member run at least three alternating legs ranging from 4 to 9 miles... and this is where the fun begins!

Assorted Nuts is the 12-person Minneapolis-based team that emerged to become one of 30 teams participating in the Great River Relay in August of 2006. Captained by Liz Harper, the team enters into their third straight year of competing in the Great River Relay; placing 10th overall (of 30 teams) in 2006 and 51st overall (of 99 teams) in 2007.

As they set out on August 22 on their 205-mile adventure, the 2008 Assorted Nuts plan to "OUT DRIVE, OUT CHEER, OUT RUN" all their competitors from LaCrosse, Wisconsin to Minneapolis, Minnesota. And even more importantly, their main strategy is to OUT-"NUTS" every team on the course. In the traditional cheer of the team, "GO NUTS!"
