Stray Dogs Introduction

The Stray Dogs Adventure Racing Team is one of the worlds premier expedition distance adventure racing teams. The Stray Dogs are known worldwide and have raced in almost every major expedition distance adventure race in the world. The team was founded in 1995 by Marshall Ulrich and Mark Macy, along with their good friends "Dr. Bob" Haugh and Lisa Smith-Batchen. For events, the founders have teamed with some of the strongest and best adventure racers in the world, including Adrian Crane, Dianette Strange, Jodi Zwicky, Maureen (Mo) Monaghan, Charlie Engle, Mike Kloser, Rebecca Rusch, and Pat Harper. The Stray Dogs have as much expedition distance adventure racing experience as any team in the world. Collectively, Marshall, Mark, Adrian, and Dianette have competed in 29 Eco Challenge, 8 Raid Gauloises, and 3 Primal Quest races. As individuals, the Stray Dogs have raced in the most difficult endurance events the world has to offer from the mountains of the Himalayas, arctic Alaska, the Sahara Desert, Death Valley, the jungles of Borneo, and the plains of Africa.
