The Relay - How, What, Help!

Running is better with friends!

Running is better with friends!

So you don’t think you can run the entire Golden Ultra as a solo, but you still want to come and check out the scene for the weekend?  Grab some friends and enter a relay team.

Unlike some other running stage races, a team entry is not about running the event together: it’s about divide and conquer!  You'll need a runner that can complete each stage - one for each day.

Each team will require an individual with the stamina for the 55km “Sweat” stage, but the Blood and Tears stages are much more amenable to trail runners looking for a less-than-all-day commitment.  Consider putting in a team that can celebrate big goal achievements on each leg: first vertical KM, first ultramarathon, first 20 km.  How fun would that be?

Two-person teams (one person runs two stages) are totally legitimate and welcome, although there is no price difference between the two and three person teams.

We’ll be awarding prizes for the top all-male, all-female and mixed teams over the three days.

The Golden Ultra is a three-day stage running race (or relay) in Golden, BC from September 18-20, 2015.  Runners may participate in all three stages as a solo or part of a relay, or may register for any single or combination of two stages separately.
