Relay Teams

New Relay!

New in 2020, we are offering the Mission 10 Miler as a relay event! Teams of two can sign up to each run a 5-mile leg of the race. Relay sponsors have the opportunity to see their company logo on the race bib, as well as the commemorative giveaway!


Registration for the 2020 Mission 10 Miler Relay is open! Not ready to run a full 10 miles? Then we have exciting news! The Mission 10 Miler is offering a 2-person relay for 2020! Challenge your co-workers, family, friends, neighborhood, church group or school team to run with you on Sunday, March 29, 2020 and together you’ll have twice the fun!

A Team Captain may register their team, prepay the combined team entry fee, and return later to complete their team information. Registering early is a great way to ensure your team gets the best pricing as well as in tip-top shape for the race! Compete with your teammate against other relay teams for the fastest male, female and co-ed relay teams in the 10 Miler. Relays must have 2 participants to qualify for awards. The first teammate to register and create the relay team will pay the registration fee.
