2019 Relay 40 miles
In 2019 we will be offering the Rucktoberfest Relay on the same day as our Ray's Trail Race 50k.
Local time: 8:22 AM
Rucktoberfest Relay will be a 40-mile (total), 4-person team relay race with a 10-hour cut time. The race will be held on September 28th, 2019 at 9am alongside our Ray's Trail Race 50k.
-There will be three loops totaling 10 miles. Runners will rotate through each loop.
-Relay teams will have one runner on the course at a time. When that runner finishes his or her loop the next runner will start the next loop.
-Winners will be determined by how quickly each team finishes the 40-mile course. Any team that do not finish the 40-miles within the ten hour cut time will be ranked based on how many loops they were able to finish before the cutoff.
-There will be space for each team to setup their "team camp". You can bring tents, small RVs, grills, etc. Whatever your team needs while doing a forty mile relay (within reason).
-The course will be a mix of single track, farm roads, and fields with two road crossings on one of the loops. There will be no paved running sections.
-There will be no aid stations on the course and one full aid station at the start / finish line. With relatively short loops (3-4 miles) runners are expected to carry their own supplies.
-Team names, themes, or costumes are not required but are hilarious. Again, all things within reason.
