As Hood to Coast has “gone green” this year, EcoShuttle thought it’d be quite opportunistic to sponsor a team. Although there is nothing green about thousands of vans constantly starting and stopping and in congestion for what can be for miles at any given exchange, we provided a carbon offset for one team: The Fluffy Bunnies. Congratulations for placing 2nd in this year’s Open Master’s Race, finishing in a time of just over 20 hours!!!
img00065.jpg This exceptionally fast and seasoned team placed just behind a Bucknell alumni team. The most amazing part about the race is the fact that the Bunnies 5 women out of the 12 runner relay teams, whereas the Bucknell team had 12 guys; an obvious, yet slight disadvantage considering the race came down to the final leg of the race! Kevin, who just so happens to drive and convert diesel cars into veggie oil rigs, motored his way down the final stretch of leg 35 with a dramatic finish, just edging the Bucknell team. img00066.jpg Unfortunately, the aforementioned disadvantage led to 2nd place, but that didn’t distort the pride of the team (can anyone say **asterisks**?)! I was proud to be a part of the team camaraderie, as I ran Hood to Coast 2 years ago on the Lactic Acid Droppers and know what a long, fun and sore-causing event it can be. See you next year with the EcoShuttle Bunnies?!

  1. Ah man, I so wish I could participated this year. Stuck in the dry and arid Reno, NV!

    I’m very happy to see Eco Shuttle making an impact in Portland, OR. Keep up the great work everyone!

  2. Thanks for sponsoring us!! We LOVED the Eco-Shuttle and it’s friendly, wonderful drivers! You added so much to the event. It was wonderful to use a bio-diesel van because it fit in so well with our team’s personal philosophy and we are happy to have played a small part in making the race slightly more green.

    We are looking forward to partnering with you in 2008!
