The Stray Dogs men started adventure racing in their forties at the first Eco-Challenge in Utah in 1995, and the woman on the team wasn't far behind,
competing in her first Eco in British Columbia in 1996 at age thirty-nine. Yes, you did the math right; all of the Stray Dogs are in their sixties! Team Captain Marshall Ulrich (68) and Adrian Crane (64), lead navigator,
are two of the three people in the world that have competed in all nine Eco-Challenges, including racing together in New England, Borneo, and New Zealand. Dr. Bob Haugh (68), secondary navigator, raced with
Marshall and Mark in Utah, British Columbia, and Australia. Nancy Bristow (62) has competed in five Eco-Challenge races and is thrilled to return to Fiji as a Stray Dog.
All up, the Stray Dog have competed in 26 Eco-Challenges! Plus dozens of other expedition length adventure races. The Stray Dogs may be 'gray' dogs, but they are out to prove that endurance never sleeps,
and relish the idea of showing the world what they can do. They may not be the fastest team but they've got the force of experience and are extremely tough athletes. Most importantly, they're looking forward
to getting together, doing the best they can, and having the best time they can.
The Stray Dogs are thrilled to have the opportunity to race together in Eco-Challenge Fiji 2019, and thank Mark Burnett and the entire organization for bringing back the ultimate,
greatest expedition race on the planet: the Eco-Challenge!
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.
