One of the most interesting group of runners I came across at last week’s 98th annual Bay to Breakers race was the centipede group (click here for a definition) from the San Francisco-based  Impala Racing Team.  The group, originally formed in 1979, is currently made up of professional women from San Francisco, Marin, the East Bay and on down to Santa Cruz.

Impala members running in this particular Bay to Breakers event included engineers, financial analysts, marketing managers, sales and advertising professionals, as well as medical and business school students, and a mom. The Impala’s objective is to provide a family-like, supportive, and goal-oriented atmosphere for the groups’ members off track as well as on. In addition, the Team’s deep commitment to competitive running has earned them Elite Development Club status from USA Track and Field.

Be sure and checkout the Imapala’s website to learn more about the group and their dedication to the sport. And here for their Facebook link.

As a side note, rather than photograph the group running, I decided to catch some pre-race moments of the team getting psyched-up and coached minutes before the race began – the light was just too nice at the start…
