THE SIX LEGS OF THE RACE:

Distances; 6.6, 4.4, 3.6, 4.5, 3.4, and 3.7 miles.

Relay teams can split up the amount of legs each person runs depending on the number of racers on their team. Relay teams can also have multiple runners run the same leg. Transitions can only take place at the designated Transition Areas.

TRANSITIONS

Parking is limited at each transition. Carpooling is strongly encouraged to limit the number of vehicles on the trail

The only item team members will need to transfer at the Transition Areas is their race belt with race bib, which is also your timing chip. Please do your best to communicate your bib # to entire relay team prior to the start of the race.

Transition Setup >

RACE SUPPORT

There will be water/sports drink stations at each transition, as well as on carts traveling on the trail. We highly recommend bringing your own fuel as well, as it is typically quite warm and you will most likely need water more often than at each transition. Water is not available every mile, but is available at the 5 Checkpoints and at every road crossing.

RACE CUT OFF

The cut off points are at Budd Rd (Transition 4) - 6 hours, Durango (Transition 5) – 7 hours and Cut off time to the finish is 8 hours. Timing chips will be pulled as these times are not met.

POST RACE PARTY

Food, beverage, music, and fun will be provided at the finish line at the Heritage Pond in Dubuque. Shuttles will also be available after the race to transport marathoners back to the Hilton Garden Inn.
