70 Mile Team Relay Application
Not ready to do the entire race by yourself? How about entering a team
in the relay event? The relay consists of teams comprised of up to five (5)
runners. Each of the team members will run one leg of the race. The legs are
of varied distances. Each of the four (4) checkpoints and the end of the race
comprise the relay legs. The checkpoints, along with the distances are
listed in the chart below.
Each team member will run one or more of the legs. A team can be made up
of less than five runners, but then one of the members will have to run
multiple legs. An individual runner can be on a team, however, that runner
will have to run the first leg of the relay, and then continue on as a solo
entrant after the first leg of the relay. If a solo runner is also part of
a team, the team entry fee will be reduced by sixty ($60.00) dollars,
provided that the solo runner has sent in his/her entry fee. Please submit
your team entries together.
The deadline for Team Relay entries is June 5th, 2017. There will be no Team Relay entries accepted after that date. There will be no race day entry for teams.
Entering a team in the relay race is a great way to get a taste of the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail without committing to the entire distance. Each year we receive many positive comments from team members. They all seem to enjoy the day running on our beautiful trail with a few of their friends.
There are a few extra rules that the teams must abide by:
Please visit the Results page for a listing of the teams that finished prior races.
