West Philly Runners’ 26×1 Mile Marathon Relay

West Philly Runners' 26 x 1mile Marathon Relay

The WPR 26 x 1mile Relay Challenge

The Race

Teams of 13 (or so) people will race for their fastest collective marathon time.

The Rules

Team members run one at a time along a pre-set 1-mile loop. Each runner will run at least two times. Beer drinking between runs is allowed. Drinking during runs is not recommended.

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 we’ll look the other way.
