The Team Competition:  Compete as a 3-person team for Prizes and Bragging Rights. Represent your group, issue challenges, make wagers, brag and taunt.  It’s all in fun.  

First of all, it is NOT a relay.  It’s only a mile, so WHY would it need to be a relay?  Teams compete based on score. Everybody runs the full mile, then we add you up.  Team score is the total of the finish places of your 3 runners.  Low score wins.

For example: if your runners cross the line in 9th, 22nd, and 35th, your team score is 66 (9+22+35=66).  If your rivals finish 1st, 5th, and 61st, they total 67 points (1+5+61=67), and you beat ‘em!  It’s simple and fun.


The NEW Categories:  Each has Male, Female, and Mixed-Gender Divisions

> Juniors:  All 3 runners are 19 or under

> Masters:  All 3 runenrs are 40 or over

> Open:    No age restrictions (any teams that are not Junior or Master)

The After Party:

The race clock shuts off at 7:20.  If you’re not in by then, oh well, you officially become a pedestrian. Get yo’ self onto the sidewalk ‘fore you get run ovah.

So, once you catch your breath, jog on over to Smokin’ Tuna Saloon (4 Charles Street), where we’ll have some food, some beverages, and another of our famous raffles.  You can win stuff that you absolutely cannot get anywhere else!
