We've decided not to let COVID-19 stop all the Relay Running Fun. This time, prepare to lace up and compete on local routes. Get your friends together (not physically, of course) and join us for the Heart of the Valley Virtual Relay!
Most of the race proceeds will be donated to the Community Services Consortium, which maintains the Linn-Benton Food Share and the new COVID-19 Rent Relief program. This organization works across Linn, Benton, and Lincoln counties to provide people with resources they need to meet their basic needs and improve their lives.
By joining the relay, you'll enjoy ...
Everything you'd ever want to know is located in the official and shiny race manual.
(The google doc is official and always up to date. The PDF is for convenience and while it is updated as often as possible to match the google doc, if there are any differences, the google doc is what the RDs will reference.)
And of course we painstakingly created a gpx file for each route.
Contests, Prizes, and Giveaways (oh my!)
The race ends on Halloween, so get in the spirit on Leg 3!
Weekly “Road Kills”
Another fun in-person tradition is a night leg.
Keep an eye out on your runs. Some of the legs will have a special marker you should find and take a picture with to be entered into our prize drawings. You can get more details on what to find on which legs by following the event on Facebook.
If we spot you running your route live, win a prize! You never know when or where we might be. (Don’t worry, not as creepy as it sounds).
