Pace does not matter at all!! At least not to me. I just think it would be fun.

Being a run/walker I think I'd be afraid of letting a relay team down with my pace...
:(

That said, I've been seriously considering doing the half. Of course, the moment I decided, I realized it is the same weekend as MPMF (Midpoint Music Festival, kind of a mini SXSW here in Cincy), and there are several bands playing the mate is interested in. Still pondering logistics...

They have changed the course this year and it will be a flatter course. I haven't looked at the course - I will be doing the event as a training run (long run) for the Marine Corps Marathon in October.

I ran the marathon relay when it was the USATF national championship and my team won the 50-59 title winning $500! My $100 share is the most money I've ever won in a race, double the $50 I won in a race as a 39 year old. Not to mention being a national champion. Thanks for bringing back the memory.

But it's the same weekend as the Great Race. :(

Lynn,

Here is the elevation for the shortest (first) leg.

8/


I think it would be awesome if a group of us could do this. I ran the relay last year as a fill in for a friend's team. I did the last leg which was 7.9 miles. It was fun but a little boring waiting a few hours for my runner to get to me. Now that I have done it, I have an idea of what to expect and what the runners can do while waiting for their turn to run.

Hi Sparkies!!

I am starting this thread to see if there is an interest in forming a SP team (or two) for the Akron Marathon relay on Saturday, September 29th. There are five legs: 3.9, 4.8, 7.5, 4.5 and 5.5 miles. I will tell you now that the course is not flat. It's not JASR hills, but there are some rolling roads for you to run on. Registration is $40 per person. Here is some info from their website.

Please let me know if you are interested. Maybe we can get something together. I am also posting this on the Spark Cleveland team.
