Hundred K Relay
The relay race is open to teams of three: an all-male team, an all-female team, and a coed team. There is a $1000 prize for the top team in each category. Every team will be issued one chip. The chip must cross the finish line 6 times, and the handoff must take place at the finish/start line-not mid-trail. Teams will determine the order of runners and laps. The race headquarter is perfect for teams and crews to relax and hang out while their teammates run. When registering, the team captain will register and pay for the entire team.
