Welcome to the Rucktoberfest Relays site. Information on the race is included below and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us. The 2018 race has been cancelled due to low registrations, however, we are offering the Rucktoberfest Relay in 2019 on the same day as our Ray’s Trail Race 50k.
Rucktoberfest 40-mile Relay
Rucktoberfest Relay will be a 40-mile, 4-person team relay race with a 10-hour cut time. The race will be held on September 28th, 2019 at 9am alongside our Ray’s Trail Race 50k.
-There will be three loops totaling 10 miles. Runners will rotate through each loop.
-Relay teams will have one runner on the course at a time. When that runner finishes his or her loop the next runner will start the next loop.
-Winners will be determined by how quickly each team finishes the 40-mile course. Any team that do not finish the 40-miles within the ten hour cut time will be ranked based on how many loops they were able to finish before the cutoff.
-There will be space for each team to setup their “team camp”. You can bring tents, small RVs, grills, etc. Whatever your team needs while doing a forty mile relay (within reason).
-The course will be a mix of single track, farm roads, and fields with two road crossings on one of the loops. There will be no paved running sections.
-There will be no aid stations on the course and one full aid station at the start / finish line. With relatively short loops (3-4 miles) runners are expected to carry their own supplies.
-Team names, themes, or costumes are not required but are hilarious. Again, all things within reason.
