8 Person Relay Registration
The NKS Distributors / Michelob Ultra eight person relay marathon works exactly like the four person relay marathon. Teams consist of eight members, with each member running one equal distance loop of 3.275 miles. Runners may complete two non-consecutive legs of the relay marathon and still allow their team to remain eligible for awards. Gender and age requirements for the teams will be enforced by the race organizers. All loops start and finish at the Relay Start / Finish in Tubman Park.
There are two ways to register for this event. You may print and mail our PDF Entry Form or you may register for your team online here.

Eight person relay marathon registrations are $320 until March 31. Registrations received after April 1 until the event is closed are $400. Corporate Team registrations (see below) are $500, regardless of when received. Some organizations may receive $20 off the team price (email us for details)
When registering by mail, all eight registration forms must be received together with the combined team entry fee. Please indicate on the forms in which running position the team member will be competing: (Runner #1, Runner #2, Runner #3, Runner #4; Runner #5; Runner #6; Runner #7; Runner #8).
Corporate eight person relay marathon registrations are $500, regardless of when received. to be fair to those companies who choose to use the marathon to promote their businesses or products, only Corporate Teams may include their business name, organization’s name, or a product name in their team name. Corporate teams receive special race program recognition and compete for a special corporate trophy which is awarded to the winning business or organization (in addition to the individual relay awards which are provided to the members of the winning corporate team).
NOTE: Because of the numerous relay team registration changes and additions that are received after the field closes each year, late additions and replacements to relay teams that need to be made after April 15, 2016 may be subject to a $25 processing fee.
