For the Relay Experience of a Lifetime...
It's a relay: you only run 3,4,5,6, or 7 miles! It's a team marathon.
You will be treated to classical music as you run along some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. See photos.
Each team's captain will receive a race packet and five originally designed, heavyweight 100% cotton T-shirts. Final results mailed out in September.
