OCEANS 26.2 Relay Race
February 5th, 2022
Event Description: A marathon distance running relay with your friends! Complete 26.2 miles with 1 or 2 of your favorite running buddies (or someone you just met). The course is a 3 loop course that starts, ends and exchanges all in the same spot. The Atlantic Ocean is nearby the entire time, breath in that salt air and breath out all your worries. The loop course came about due to permitting restrictions in 2020 and ended up being a huge hit. No worrying about driving to each exchange, less sidewalk and more shade. Not to mention the added feel of an event by being in the same transition area all day with all of the other runners!
How does the relay work? Create your team of 2-3 runners, decide who will run when, (come up with costumes?), and run a marathon, relay style! One person from each team runs at a time, the others hang out in the transition area recovering, relaxing and making memories with everyone around. Then comes the hand off to the next runner. Repeat cheering, support, good times. Keep up this relay style running for 26.2 miles until your adventure concludes at the finish line party. Collect your hard earned finishers gift, have a drink, eat some food.
