His months of training almost over, Bassmaster Elite Series pro Aaron Martens says he is ready.
He’ll take on a 21-mile share of a 199-mile relay run from Miami to Key West, Fla., on Jan. 6-7, as a member of the Racing Fish Heads, a team registered to take part in the Ragnar Relay Series event. His wife, Lesley Martens, who ran last year in the same event, is another member of the 11-runner team captained by Eric Lopez, director of site operations for B.A.S.S. — and an avid runner.
In his new Bassmaster.com blog, Martens said that to benefit a charity, he’ll be set up next week to ask for people to sponsor him in his debut as a runner. The charity he’s selected is Tackle the Storm Foundation, to which many Elite pros have donated jerseys for auction
