uby Mountain Relay is the overnight running relay race that makes testing your limits a team sport. The relay format makes RMR an accessible race for beginners and challenging enough for the most competitive runners. How does one do this? We've answered your Top 10 questions and much more.
Top 10 Questions:
Q: How far do I have to run?
A: Each team member runs 3 times (or legs, as we refer to them) over the course of the Ruby Mountain Relay. Each leg is usually between 2 and 8 miles long. A relay is physically demanding, but legs vary in difficulty, and runners can choose their legs. This unique relay format makes the Ruby Mountain Relay an accessible race for beginners yet challenging enough for the most competitive athletes.
Q: Do I need to have all 12 people on my team in order to register?
A: You do not need to have your entire team put together before you sign up. You can add or substitute team members for free until the morning of the Relay.
Q: Do I pay for the entire team at the time I register?
A: The team fee is paid in full at the time of registration.
Q: Do I have to find my own team or will the Ruby Mountain Relay do that for me?
A: You assemble your own team through friends, family, co-workers etc. We recommend finding 1-2 interested people and have them recruit as well. Teams can also utilize the Ruby Mountain Relay Facebook Fan Page for recruitment as well.
Tip: If you're looking to join a team, you will get a lot of calls a week or two before the event. If you are looking for runners, we suggest grabbing them off the Facebook page at least a few weeks in advance.
Q: How do runners get from one exchange to the next?
A: One runner runs at a time, from point A to point B. The rest of their team drives ahead and cheers them on, offering support if needed. When the first runner nears the end of their leg, runner 2 waits for them at the exchange where they hand off the slap bracelet and runner 2 begins their leg. After all 6 runners from vehicle 1 complete their legs, they meet up with runners 7-12 and the cycle begins again with vehicle 2. When your vehicle is inactive, you will have a few hours to rest and eat until it’s your turn to start running again.
Q: Who provides the vehicles?
A: Teams must provide their own vehicles. The ideal choice is a 12-15 passenger van. Teams often use Minivans and Suburban’s as well.
Q: What time does the race start on Friday?
A: The starts are staggered throughout the day, based upon your team's average pace. Slower teams start earlier, while faster teams start later. A typical start time spread would be between 5 am and 3pm.
Q: Why do we have to provide volunteers?
A: Due to the large scale of this event we need helping hands to ensure a safe and fun event for all.
