OCEANS 26.2 Relay Race
May 9th, 2020
Event Description: A marathon distance running relay with your friends! Complete 26.2 miles with 1 or 2 of your favorite running buddies (or someone you just met). The course runs through scenic Flagler County, scenery that is sure to keep reminding you of why you love running. The Atlantic Ocean is by your side nearly the entire time, breath in that salt air and breath out all your worries. The course is a fun out and back, turning around after a half marathon and high fiving everyone as you head to the finish.
How does the relay work? Create your team of 2-3 runners, decide who will run what distances, get a team vehicle and run a marathon, relay style! One person from each team runs at a time, the others hang out in the car cheering them on, giving them water and getting to know each other real well. Then comes the hand off to the next runner. Repeat cheering, support, good times. Keep up this relay style running for 26.2 miles until your adventure concludes at the finish line party. Collect your hard earned hardware, have a drink, eat some food.
*Start times will be assigned to teams based on average team pace. Teams must have all runners added to their team page online before their start time can be assigned.

Course description and exchange points: We are doing things a little different with this relay race. There are no designated exchange points, which means you all decide where you'll switch from one runner to the next. Leg distances cannot be less than 2 miles long. All exchanges must take place where it is safe and legal for vehicles to pull over and vehicles/support crew must always be on the same side of the road as the runner (no crossing A1A).
The race starts at Hammock Community Center, just steps away from the ocean. From there, teams will run through the very scenic Mala Compra trails, popping out at 16th st and getting on A1A heading South. No need to worry about course directions for a while, you'll just stay on A1A all the way to Hwy 100, where you'll turn right and head West over the Flagler bridge. The half-way point is just on the other side at Wadsworth Park. Teams will turn around and head back the exact same way, ending where you started at the Hammock Community Center.
Teams will not be required to provide a volunteer! Our charity will be filling all of our volunteer slots. Our Charity Partner: As a huge animal lover and dog owner I'm so happy and proud to have a local dog rescue as our charity partner for this event, Puptown Gal. A portion of your registration fee goes towards their efforts and you can also submit an additional donation during your team registration. See website for more information on Puptown Gal.
