A great opportunity to be a part of the Drake Relays tradition. Lining up with some of the best collegiate runners participating in the 8K and watching them fly is a sight. The 13.1 half is well protected (from wind and traffice)through some of the older and safer neighborhoods. Volunteers are abundant and locals are scattered throughout the course in there lawn chairs offering beverage and support. This race is a lot of fun. And of course it is the Drake Relays!
