26x1mile

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.

When/Where

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

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