Jack Hausmann has run the Great Race at least seven times and is going this year again with his granddaughter, Zoe. She is his navigator, as she was last year when they raced from St. Paul to Mobile! This year, the 2014 event will start in the state of Maine on Saturday, June 21, and end in Florida nine days later on Sunday, June 29.
It will mark the first time the Great Race has been to the state of Maine, and it will be the first time in 10 years that it has been in Florida. In 2004, the Great Race started in Jacksonville. Other states the Great Race will pass through in 2014 will be Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.
They will be giving a running commentary here and friends and family are welcome to contribute encouragement and accolades!
