MARS Team Crazylegs Classic 2008 plaque
The first MARS teaM in the history of MARS started formation on 03/21/2008 and can be seen below. This team competed in the 2008 Crazylegs Classic where 16 of 18 people were present on race day. There was no team scoring for this event; however, its main purpose was to bring more benefits to team members, and to introduce the team aspect of MARS for the first time. Later on, there will be more MARS team races as will be seen in the team section. Team participants for the first race were from many places in the madison area to as far as Kenosha, WI. People of various experience levels and ages were part of the team.


Crazylegs Team Participants:
Kim Luke, Matthew De Witt, Matt Cook, Jeffrey Price, MARS Phantom-One, Ronald Mexico, Dana Bartholomew, Tracy Sedgwick, Steve Greene, Tom Berg, Brian Sedgwick, Robin Forbes-Lorman, Daniel Harris, Peter Premkumar, Jess Manier, Barry Seifert

Dana has been our top competitor in the his age group since joining the series in 2008. He has demonstrated great fitness both in running and in strength, and to some extent this comes as no surprise since he has a history of a wrestler. Additionally, he was the overall top male winner in the press and run combo.
