Five-leg relay, each loop with beautiful, runnable trail!
More trail, more socializing, more team-leg flexibility, great view of every leg's start and finish, minimal driving, flush toilets! We'll have a hospitality room in Egan and will try to keep up with brewing coffee to go with the other treats.
All legs start and end in front of the Mourant Building in the UAS main courtyard.
All legs run counter-clockwise, starting and ending along Auke Lake.
Legs 1, 3 and 5 are approximately 6 miles each.
Legs 2 and 4 are the same as the former Seacoast Relay leg 1, approximately 3 miles each.
Please help us make this an out-door friendly event by bringing your own water bottle. You may also wish to bring a lawn chair and other creature comforts to enjoy while cheering and watching the race. The course is on the bike path and bus line!
We will provide water, Gatorade, and race-type snacks. No race BBQ is planned, though teams are welcome to bring pic-nick meals to share with team mates. Grills are allowed, if kept away from buildings, of course.
If you are unable to find a team and don't mind not getting a team score, so long as you have pre-registered and begin with leg one with everyone else at the usual 9AM-ish time, we will mark your time for as many legs as you complete. You may even be able to meet up with one of the other folks looking for a team.
Last-minute questions? Please contact Susan at 586-3016 or 209-9164. Thanks!
How the bibs work
Each team will have a matched set of five bibs waiting for them at the race start site by 8:30 AM on race day, one for each of the five race legs. For example, the numbers may be 9999-1, 9999-2, 9999-3, 9999-4, and 9999-5. Runners will be responsible for writing their own name and age on the bibs pull tabs before the race begins (leave the tabs attached!). This allows flexibility within the team for last minutes changes. So basically you are signing up for the team at registration while having the freedom to pick legs on race day. All runners must have registered in advance and agreed to the liability waiver.
If a runner will be completing more than one leg, that runner can pin on just the bib for the highest number leg, but must have all of the pull tabs for the lower numbered legs ready to hand to race crew upon crossing the finish line. For example, if a runner is doing legs two and three, the runner would pin on the leg 3 bib with it's pull tab attached and carry or pin on just the pull tab for leg 2.
Legs 1, 3 & 5
Counter-clockwise loop starting in front of the Mourant Building (UAS main courtyard). Down across Auke Creek bridge, along the highway on the new bike path to Wildmeadow Lane. Go straight where Wildmeadow turns, onto the trail which heads over to the horse trail (trail from Veteran's Day run, but opposite direction). The unpaved horse trail which parallels the River Trail will be marked for the race. Take it to when pavement begins on River Road, then make a quick turn along Kelly Court and across a short path to Steelhead. Steelhead to Back Loop Road. Return to campus along the left side of Back Loop Road and on the sidewalk which passes in front of the forestry lab.
Legs 2 & 4
Counter-clockwise loop starting in front of the Mourant Building (UAS main courtyard); the same as the first Seacoast Relay leg. Down across Auke Creek bridge, along the highway on the new bike path to Auke Lake Trail, on the trail over to Goat Hill. After the little jog up Goat Hill return to campus along the left side of Back Loop Road and on the sidewalk which passes in front of the forestry lab.
Juneau Trail and Road Runners (formerly called Southeast Road Runners), a tiny little part of Road Runners of America. We are very grateful to UAS for having such a wonderful space to enjoy as part this event.
If you really want to preregister on paper instead of online we've allowed an option for this. There will be no race-day registration, but paper forms will be collected at Nugget Alaskan Outfitters until 7PM Friday, May 26th. Forms are available by clicking the link posted below the photo on the JTRR/SERR website (http://juneauserr.wixsite.com/serr). Price is higher than registering here ($15/$1), to encourage online registration and reduce the burden on volunteers. We're striving to reduce the human-resource burden of the relay race so that it can continue to be an annual tradition. Thank you for your moral support of the volunteers who work very hard to keep JTRR and JTRR races going.
If you have any questions please look for our contact info on the Juneau Trail and Roadrunners website, on the PDF linked from 2017 Event Calendar button, or in the scrolling calendar itself.
