The WPR 26 x 1mile Relay Challenge
Teams of 26 (or so) people will race for their fastest collective marathon time.
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.
Each team must devise their own baton. It an be anything - a snap bracelet, a banana, a stick, a pompom, etc.
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 I'll look the other way.
Register for the race here and select a team that you would like to be on just in case we get multiple teams together.
