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.


Register for the race here and select a team that you would like to be on.
