Registration Is OPEN

Limited to 30 Teams

We have created the "Stars & Stripes Relay" to celebrate Memorial Day while honoring our active military and veterans. Teams of up to 4 runners are encouraged to complete the 26.2-mile course carrying our Nation's Flag.

There will be awards for the 1st team crossing the finish line that carried the flag start to finish.

To be fair the Flag must measure at minimum 3 feet by 5 feet and be attached to a pole between 5 and 6 feet in length and be unfurled.

Please Note

We kindly ask that the teams do not try to cross the finish line together.  We have had teams ruin the finisher's photo in the past for athlete's running the full marathon. Please be considerate.
