An Interval Relay Race is a team event where runners choose to run distances of personal choice, instead of the standard method of running designated legs between exchange points.  Runners may exchange the baton at any time, or any order, running as short, or as long a distance as you may desire.  This makes for more team participation, with strategies like putting fast runners on the flats, strong runners on the hills, and sprinters near the finish.

 

Course :  A beautiful 57 mile traverse through the Umatilla Forest starting along Asotin Creek Canyon, ascending to an elevation of 6194 feet between Mt. Misery and Mt. Horrible. You will enjoy breathtaking views of the Grande Ronde River as you descend to Grouse Flats.  Then it’s a sharp plunge down the Wenaha River to Troy. The course is mostly on a gravel road with only six miles of pavement. Well-maintained support vehicles with traction tires are required.  Bring tools, first-aid, water, and food for the  long drive.   Play it safe and share the road. Travel trailers and RV's are too wide for the course and must drive around to Troy.  The Shilo Troy Resort will be serving food that can be purchased directly from the resort after the race.
