70 Mile Team Relay Application

Not ready to tackle 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 1st, 2020. 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.

The cut-off times were revised as of 2017 and a cut-off has been implemented for the aid station at mile 39.1. Here is a chart of the sections and mileage.
Note that the mile 39 aid station is not a relay exchange point. It is just listed so that you are aware of the time cut-off there. The relay exchanges only occur at the four checkpoints (miles 19.3, 32.3, 46.4 and 57.1)
