A 50-MILE RELAY RACE
ALBANY TO EUGENE

Sunday, November 27, 2011

Results Posted

The Civil War Relay is a one-day, 52-mile relay race celebrating the local college football rivalry between the University of Oregon and Oregon State University, locally refereed to as "The Civil War." The direction of the route will depend on which school has the home game.

COURSE

As this year's Civil War game is hosted by the University of Oregon on Saturday, November 26th, this year's Civil War Relay will start on Sunday November 27th at the Linn Benton Community College in Albany

The course is divided into twenty-five legs and is rural in nature except for when entering Eugene. After departing Linn Benton, teams will run on the shoulders of the roads crossing through the scenic Oregon country side and small, quaint towns, to the finish line in Alton Baker Park, near the University of Oregon's Autzen Stadium.

Each leg is around 2-miles which allows for a quick pace with less down time in case of a classic wet Oregon winter day.

TEAMS

Teams will consist of up to five runners and there will be both a competitive category and a non-competitive category. Each person on a competitive team will run 5 legs and the team must maintain the running order. In the non-competitive, or "Helter Skelter" category, runners do not have to maintain the running order.

High School teams are invited to participate and have a discounted registration fee.

THE CIVIL WAR RELAY IS A FORM OF ADVENTURE RACE

  • Teams are self supporting - teams are responsible for supplying their own vehicle (one only per team) and for stocking their vans with their own water, food, first aid supplies, etc.
  • While directional arrows are placed on the course, the responsibility of knowing and following the prescribed course rests with each participant. Please always print, study and understand the leg maps.
  • Hazards are not marked - runners should proceed with caution.
  • The route is not closed to traffic - runners are running on the side of the road. Therefore, appropriate rules (for safety and for consideration to the people who live there) apply. These rules are similar to USA Triathlon sanctioned events as their races are usually on open courses. Failure to follow these rules will result in the entire team being disqualified:
    • No headsets, radio and/or headphones/ MP3 Players are allowed
    • Use the portable toilets that are available at the exchanges to relieve yourself. You will be disqualified if you are seen relieving yourself on the ground.
    • No littering - each team is required to have a trash bag in their van. Trash receptacles will be available at the exchanges where there are portable toilets.
