Our scenic team was scenic, our fast team was fast, our balanced team was fabulously well balanced. Nice!

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. (below)
Each team member will receive a race packet and an originally designed, heavyweight 100% cotton T-shirt. Final results mailed out in September.
