Winter Solstice Relay 2018


For the second year, we will be partying it up at Dahu Park from noon till sunset. On December 23rd, runners will navigate the classic 3.06k loop over Mount Bailusi, then circling the lake at Dahu Park and the Crescent Moon Bridge before a boardwalk sprint back to your team.

Beginning at noon, teams of two or four take turns rounding the course, alternating in relay-style racking up as many points as they can before the sun sets at 6:30 P.M. The teams with the most laps before sunset win.

One lap should take runners around 30 minutes to complete, and takes runners over vertical climbs, dirt paths, boardwalks, and grassy park trails.

Prizes for:

    • Top three pairs 
    • Fastest superteam of four people
    • After-party raffle winners
  • New_Icon.png King of the Mountain Award for the fastest lap of the day
