Race Preview: B.Y.O.B Resolution Relay (Boring)

Get your resolutions, get your resolutions and Bring Your Own Baton! So for all of you who wanted to run this year for your resolution now you can on the very last day of the year. Here is a way to fulfill multiple resolutions and celebrate New Years Eve guilt free style! Fulfill this years resolutions in by running, running in a relay or running a half marathon!

The race organizers of this race want you to get creative and have fun with creating your own team, name, and baton to match (preferably). They are just excited about what you or your team will create to bring (as long as it’s appropriate – phew, that could be a bad decision). Be it a rubber chicken, golden scepter, or megaphone (not too loud), just make sure you come out to the event.

The relay ability of the event also gives you your options of how many participants there are per team. It’s not like Hood To Coast where you have 12 members and two vans – it is zero vans and up to four runners to a team for the half marathon distance. Or you can run it solo as well if you want to kick off your new year with some miles.

The way the distances work is:

  • Leg 1: 3.5 Miles
  • Leg 2: 3.9 Miles
  • Leg 3: 2.2 Miles
  • Leg 4: 3.5 Miles

Example: If you sign up for a team of 3, the first runner does Leg 1, the second runner does Leg 2 and Leg 3 and the third runner does Leg 4.

If that’s not enough, you also have the option of running wherever you want with a virtual race – so you can run your own resolution half marathon somewhere not “boring”.

This race is put on by Eastwind Running & Endurance and it is their goal of this race to award a scholarship in the Spring of 2017 for local high schoolers who participate in physical fitness and incorporate it into their busy lives.

So if that’s still not reason enough to sign up, know that if you do you will receive a long sleeve tech t-shirt, a cowbell finisher medal with a neck strap, a logo bib, breakfast, goodie bag, custom awards for 1st place finishers, AND more prizes. Now that’s ending the year off right!
