We all want to have a great time, and a trip to Urgent Care usually does not qualify. What you find below are some basics about course safety and guidelines. Full detailed information and rules can be found in the the Alaska Relay Race Guide.
The Alaska Relay is a FULLY OPEN COURSE, meaning open to the public, traffic, etc. We make every effort to design the course to be safe for runners, but ultimately, it is your responsibility to be aware of your surroundings.
Every runner is required to have a reflective vest available on the course and must wear it when out of their vehicle during night hours (1100H - 0400H). Additionally the active runner on the course must have a headlamp and LED flashers facing forwards and backwards. Additional colorful and/or unique lighting is welcome! See the Official The Alaska Race Guide for further details.
The Alaska Relay teams are fully self-supporting, meaning your team provides for itself water, food, minor first aid. Through most of the course, your team can stop and support & cheer on your active runner. Following or "tailing" your runner on the course is strictly forbidden. Support vehicles must not impede normal traffic in any way.
Unlike many races, The Alaska Relay uses an OPEN COURSE, meaning that all roads and paths we traverse are open to normal traffic. Be aware of your surroundings! Unless specifically stated otherwise in the Race Guide or by a Race Official, runners must follow all normal laws for pedestrians for road crossings.
A relay race is all about fun, friends (old and new) and enjoying the adventure. Crossing the finish line is not the end of the day either. We encourage all participants, volunteers as well as their frinds and family to join us for a great time at the finish line.
The The Alaska Relay is having it's third running in June 2019! So that makes all the records up for grabs! Get a team together and get yourself in the history books!
