Relay teams of 2 will have each team member running around a 10K for a combined completed half marathon distance.

There will be transportation provided for those running the second leg of the relay, and for the first leg runners to the post-race area. 

This popular portion of our race is capped at 100 teams and sells out fast, so sign up early!

Post-Race Party

Nothing, and we mean nothing is better than post race beers. After you run you’ll be able to enjoy beer from a local craft brewing company. You can’t beat it. Oh … and don’t forget about the pizza!



A medical team will be onsite for any hiccups that happen. 13.1 miles is a long way, so train and listen to your body on race day, please!

Parking and Directions

The start of the race is approximately at 202 Merrimac Street on the corner of Kern St. Almost all of the streets off of Merrimac Street are parking friendly. Please be courteous and respectful to the neighbors living in these neighborhoods and be sure to not block a driveway or park too close to a fire hydrant.

Carpool if you can – we are expecting a big crowd! Keep in mind that if you arrive less than 1.5 hours from the start, it is best to not drive too close to the start line as you may have to sit in traffic.
