The main event this weekend is our relay race. You will be put on a team of 8 with other people from your tribe. Within your team, you will be partnered up with someone of a similar running pace. You will be running with your partner at all times for safety. Between 4:00 PM and 10:00 PM, your team will run as many laps as possible (each set of partners going one at a time) over our 2.5ish mile course, and marking a tally everytime a leg is completed. When the clock strikes 10 we will count up all the tallies and congratulate our winning team!
