What an amazing race! The fact that the weather was grumpy and ugly couldn’t dampen the camaraderie and love that was palpable all weekend long. Once again, SHVP showed up ready to compete and represent veganism in a way that was not only compassionate but that was fiercely exuberant. We towed the line with 3 teams of 7 runners: Team Seitan: Nate DeMontigny, Evan O’Brien, Kara Pellowe, Rachel Atcheson, Sean Bethell (Captain), Peter Nussbaum, Kathryn J. Wicht Team Tofu: Susie Pietsch, Marie Gryszowka (Captain), Christopher Campbell, Lauren Victoria, Mikey Dee, Ashley Sherman, Brian G Smith Team TVP: Andrew Boynton, Shawna Rae, Joel Capolongo, Melissa […]

Five years. That’s a long time, but it feels like yesterday that we took a measly twelve runners from Saratoga Springs to Lake Placid, NY. This year, our fifth consecutive year of competing in Reebok Ragnar Relay Adirondacks, we took four teams of twelve runners (plus van drivers!) across the state. Some were veterans, some brand new to our zany antics and animal advocacy. WE HAD A BLAST, and this year was super special because all four teams raced so near each other. We got to see other teams and vans throughout the race, sharing laughs, photos, Snaps, and all […]

Race season is in full swing, and our strong-hearted runners spent the month of May crushing courses, earning PRs, and logging those final training miles for Ragnar PA. Spoiler: vegan donuts may have also been involved.
Our ragtag band of vegans had a busy April, logging lots of miles and posting a bunch of impressive PRs. Looks like some good training in there for Ragnar Pennsylvania, which is now only a few short weeks away!
Race season is getting underway and things finally are starting to pick up again for our compassionate crew. Here’s what our teammates got up to in March.
Our strong-hearted vegan crew braved the snow and wind last month to take down some serious miles and earn some PRs. There also may have been some shorts-clad frolicking, because 60-degree days in February are now a thing. Thanks, climate change.
We’re very excited to announce our next Ragnar Relay: Ragnar Pennsylvania in the Poconos on June 2, 2017! We’re even more excited that for the first time ever, we have a massive FIVE teams entering the race; that’s 60 powerhouse vegans on the road! Each team will cover about 200 miles on foot, spread out over about 24 hours and 12 runners,. It’s an epic feat, and we do it for the animals. In fact, we’ve already started raising money for this race’s beneficiary: Tamerlaine Farm Animal Sanctuary. Tamerlaine Farm Sanctuary is a haven for abused, neglected and abandoned farmed animals […]
January was another light month for our runners race-wise (hello off-season!), but a few of our teammates still made a point of getting out there and logging some bib-clad miles. Here’s what our crew got up to last month:
