The Format

Do you love relays but hate sitting in a car all day? Then this is the race for you, relax at a central location and cheer runners on as you wait for your team mates and your turn to run again. If you are feeling intrepid you can run all the legs by yourself to complete the marathon course.


Registration for the 2020 Hammond Relays opens March 1st 2020 on Ultra SignUp. The 50mi, 4-person relay is $120 ($140 after June 1st), and the marathon is $35($45 after June 1st). Fee includes BBQ meal a small aid station at the start/finish of each loop, beer on tap with finisher pint glasses, awards for top teams and top finishers in the marathon, and, most importantly, a fun supported day in the woods. Our goal is to provide an affordable event but at the high quality you are used to seeing at the bigger more expensive races.

Refunds: Partial refunds (minus a $20 cancellation fee) are available before August 16th. Email us at
