Description of Race Events

The RELAY WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP is an independent, global, qualifying championship for the sport of Long Distance Relay racing. THE BEST OF THE BEST 12-person or 6-person teams compete to be the fastest LDR team in the world! Northeastern Nevada (Elko County) is the host of the 2016 RWC. Enjoy an uncluttered and breathtaking course around the spectacular Ruby Mountains.

The RWC was created to promote, unify, and increase participation in the sport of Long Distance Relay running while celebrating amazing athletes and the LDR community.
