Hogan Haake and Jo Newbold are participating in Mixed Tandem for the MR340 race this year. They start at 8 am Tuesday July 19th, 2016. They are listed as boat #0306, team “Donut & Maple Syrup”. The team name comes from their respective nutrition needs. Hogan prefers good old fashioned junk food, but always donuts for breakfast! Jo on the other hand focuses on whole body health. She plans to go downriver on a mix of water, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and Maple Syrup.
In order to have everything they need for the race, their faithful ground crew of Danelle Haake (Hogan’s wife) and Dan Haake (Hogan’s Dad) will follow them along the river in the van, meeting them at each checkpoint. Without this support, the race would be significantly more difficult.
