Team up with some friends and take on a marathon! The Rockin’ Marathon Relay offers the opportunity to gather a team to conquer a full marathon, all the while enjoying music and a fun party atmosphere at the relay exchange zone! Without a doubt, this will the most fun you’ll ever have running a marathon!
Here’s how Rockin’ Marathon Relay works: teams of 2, 3, or 4 members alternate relay legs until the full marathon distance is completed on a loop course. One team member is out running hard on the course while the rest of the team is having a good time at the relay exchange zone. The exchange zone is one big party – enjoy music, food, and socialize with teammates and competitors alike – but be ready for when you next take the handoff for your team!
For those of you who are bold enough to try the full marathon on a loop course alone, you can run the Rockin’ Marathon Relay solo!
