Event description

Description

A traditional DMR, or "distance medley relay" is run on a track. The four legs consist of 1200, 400, 800 and 1600 meters adding up to 4000 meters all together. This holiday season, The Trackhouse is organizing a holiday DMR that will take place on the road under the Boston Common lights. And it won't be traditional.

  • The legs will be close to traditional distances (1050, 450, 750 and 1750 meters) and will add up to 4000 total.
  • The track will not be traditionally flat with a hill that climbs up towards the Massachusetts State House and then back down around the Frog Pond skating rink.
  • The exchange zone will be on Charles Street - 20 meters before turning right up Beacon Street (Batons will be provided)
  • And most importanly, we'll end the evening with a festive Holiday party back at The Trackhouse.

Team Competition (2 women, 2 men)

  • Teams that wish to qualify for prize money should consist of 2 men and 2 women per team (not necessary for teams that don't wish to qualify for prize money).
  • Women's legs are 1 (1050 meters) and 3 (750 meters), men's legs are 2 (450 meters) and 4 (1750 meters).
  • All-male, all-female, or other mixed teams are also allowed! They will just not be eligible for prize money.
