Inspired by the Ragnar Relay Series, The Barkley Marathons and The Amazing Race, the Kangaroobie Base Camp Ultra Relay has now been added to the Princetown East Running Calendar.  

 

An Ultra because the proposed distance per runner is 54 km, albeit not all in one outing.

A Relay because only one person from your team is out on a trail at any given time.  You will need to rest-up & wait your turn before heading back out to enjoy the spectacular views Kangaroobie has on offer.  It's a relay that's not as demanding as the Barkley Marathons but a little bit more challenging than the tried and trusted 4x100 we all ran at school!

 

6, 9, 12, R.  The relay legs alternate between 3 unique trails of varying distances.  One is shorter, one is longer, the other in-between.  We have nothing against decimals or fractions but the distances have been rounded down to a whole number, just because it looks better on the logo.  So, the overall distance will be a little bit longer that advertised. Take it in turns to run each distance before hitting the (R)epeat button to do it all again! While the distance of each trail may differ, they all share a common foe: elevation.  Gullys and spurs galore! 

And, it wouldn't be a Princetown Institute of Sport event without a little bit of quirkiness.  Before each outing you can expect to be tasked to either do something or collect an item while out on the trail for your lap to be deemed successful. 

 

Teams of up to 12 people can enter.  While every person gets a finishers medal and bragging rights, only teams of 4 who complete the relay in the set format are eligible for prizes.

Want a bigger team?  This can be done by entering two (2) teams to get each person registered (eg. "Our Team Name - A" & "Our Team Name - B").  Then divvy the cost per person across the two teams.  We will merge the two entries on race day.
