Now a premier running event in the
Pacific Northwest, the 100K relay and solo race is held
in April. Some 600 runners participate. There are usually three starting times. The ultras (solo runners)
start early in the morning. The slower relay teams (usually 10 per team)
start later, and the fastest relay teams start last. The staggered start
reduces traffic congestion on the narrower parts of the course.
Starting in 2005, this race is organized by the
Race director is PRR board member John Pool.
Note to Team Captains:
|In past years,
runners on legs 1 and 7 were under police control when
crossing Highway 195. That will continue, although under new
State of Washington Transportation Department rules, runners
may have to be stopped from crossing the Highway if their
crossing will impede the flow of traffic. In short, at the
crossing points, motorists will have priority, not runners.
2012 Note: There *may* be a course deviation for those running Leg 10 and for those running as solos,
depending on whether there is a sidewalk closure associated with the reconstruction of the Martin football stadium.
A decision about the deviation won’t be made until the day before the race; more information will be available at packet pickup.
