We have added a 2 person RELAY event this year. The Relay point is at the start/finish line and will follow all the same time and cut offs as the 50K event. We will have three categories this year eligible for team awards. There will be awards for the top three in the Men teams, Women's teams and open or Co-ed team. So how this will work is the 50K distance is two laps, the first member will run one lap, passing off to the their team mate to run the 2nd lap. If you trust your partner to show up on time one of you could even sleep in a little!!

Race Course Overview:

The race will start at the Solon Recreation Complex at the Timber Dome. Runners will enter the North Shore Trail into Lake Macbride Park where they will find their first major aid station near the beach house. They will enter the Dam to Beach trail proceeding to the dam, cross the spillway and take the trails towards the boat house, which is also the second aid station. They will run past the boat house, re-entering the trails for a few more miles going past the boat house again. Runners will then head down towards the lake and immediately take a right onto the Field Campus Trail and onto Lake Macbride Rd to Mehaffey Bridge Rd. There they will head left, facing traffic but running on the shoulder of the road (which is about 3 feet wide) until they reach Racine Rd in Solon. They will turn left on Racine and head to the finish line at the Timber Dome lodge, at this point their race is complete or they will run one more lap depending on their distance of choice. The 50K is two laps of the same course.
