Relay Race Team Divisions

(1) Open/Overall (no restrictions on the make up of the team; individuals may run multiple legs; all other divisions eligible to place in the open/overall division, so if your team fits any of the other categories you can register in that division and still qualify for the Open/Overall awards)

(2) Church

(3) Organizations (business, company, club, other organizations)

(4) Coed (two female and two male)


Each member of the first, second, or thrid place team in each race division will receive an award--Blue, Red, or Gold Aluminum Batons (This year every team member gets a baton. No ribbons). The first place team overall wins an original cheetah trophy sculpted by Ulrich Zouanda, African refugee artist in Morocco.

Walkers (Yahtzee)

Teams of walkers are welcomed and encouraged to participate. Walkers may complete the course together. Each walking team will be given a Yahtzee score card and each walker will be given five random Yahtzee cards (with a number one through six as on a Yahtzee die). There will be two stations along the course where teams may discard (re-roll) any number of cards they choose in an atempt to get the most points according to the rules of Yahtzee. Prizes awards to the teams with the first, second, and third highest team scores.

Kids' Games

Kids’ Sprint, Kids’ Relay, and Kids’ Obstacle Course races will begin at about 5:00 p.m. Meet Speedy the Cheetah.


--May I have a team of less than four?

Yes, you do not have to have four to participate. One person can run/walk multiple legs of the relay. So you could have a team of 1, 2, 3, or 4. Last year we had several run the whole 10 miles by themselves. Others teams ran with two or three. Discounts are available for teams of one or two. You would not be able to meet the requirements for Coed, however, without four on a team.

--What if I want to run or walk on a team but don’t have a team?

Send an email to keith@lexingtonavenue or post on the facebook and we will get you connected with others looking for a team. Let us know if you plan to run or walk.

--May walkers walk together as a team or do we have to take turns.

Yes walkers may walk together and for the sake of time are encourged to do so. Your team’s time, if you are interested, will be multiplied by four. We have a special Yahtzee game for walkers to play together.

Pass the Baton

Benefiting African Refugees in Morocco

Many Subsaharan Africans fleeing war, extreme poverty, political and religious persecution, and famine, cross the desert and end up in Morocco in a desperate and seemingly hopeless situation. The Protestant Church of Morocco, made up primarily of African students, seeks to minister to these refugees by providing start-up funds for micro-businesses, skills training, scholarships, food, and other forms of assistance. These busy students work diligently to help bring hope to weary African refugees. Your participation in this event will help.

Our friends of the Protestant Church of Morocco will use profits from this Relay--every penny of it--assisting refugees in a desperate situation (Only a few leaders in Morocco are paid a meager salary by the church and the workers throughout Morocco are volunteers).

With your registration fee and donations you are providing the following:

1. Food bags (flour, rice, oil, sardines, sugar)

2. Blankets

3. Scholarships

4. Professional Training (so that refugees can learn skills to provide for themselves)

5. Micro Business Projects (so that refugees can use their skills to provide for themselves)

You will have the option of choosing which of the above services your registration will go to support.
