The 5th Annual WPR 26x1 Mile Marathon Relay - May 2016

The Race

Teams of 13 (or so) people will race for their fastest collective marathon time.


May 15 10am at the field behind the Horticultural Center in West Fairmount Park.

The Champion

Each team will select a runner - different than their last mile runner - to run the final 0.2 miles to complete the official marathon for the team. Selection for this position is considered a great honor.

The Baton

Each team must devise their own baton. It an be anything - a snap bracelet, a banana, a stick, a pompom, etc.

The Torch

Each team's champion will complete his 0.2 mile leg with a torch of their making. It probably should not be on fire, but I'll look the other way.


Registration for the 2016 race will open soon. Stay tuned.
