50K TEAM RELAY APPLICATION


The 50k team relay race will consist of three (3) legs that teams of two (2) or three (3) members will run. The first transition will be at the 11 mile aid station, the second transition will be at the 19 mile aid station. This will result in distances of approximately 11, 8 and 12 miles. The time limit is ten (10) hours. Awards will consist of trophies for the first place male, female and mixed teams.


The 50K team relay race will begin at 7:30 a.m. on June 14th, 2014. The start line is on Garret Rd. in Ohiopyle, PA near the start of the 70.5 mile race. The course will follow the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail, terminating at the Trailhead near Route 31. This is a point-to-point race. We will have bus transportation available prior to the race. The bus will pick up runners near the 50K finish area and transport them to the start line, before the race. There will be no transportation after the race. Since it is a point-to-point race, runners are welcome to bring a crew. There are designated parking areas at each of the checkpoint/aid stations, which must be utilized. The Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail is a state park, and we are fortunate to receive a permit to run the race. Failure to use the designated parking areas could result in a revocation of our race permit.

Transitions

The team relay transitions will be at the existing aid stations at miles 11 and 19 along the trail. Each team is responsible for getting their runners to the correct transition area. Teams must check in with the transition area captain.
