This is a relay that a team can finish in just one day and with a team of just six. This is a great way to get your running shoes dipped into the world of relay races. If you are wondering if this is a race full of elite level runners that are closing in on a four minute mile time, they will be here and are ready to compete. If you are a casual runner, or a company looking for a great team building event there will be a lot of teams like that as well.
You are a hero! Taking the lead and putting a relay team together can be some work but a lot of fun too. We will try to do our best to make the work part as easy as possible.
Please take a few moments and review the information in the above tabs for all the detailed info on registering a relay time. Once you have done that and you are ready to go come back here and click that button over there on the right!
You have found the right place! You are also in luck, your Team Captain has done all the heavy lifting. So all we will need from you is for you to fill out a simple form. You can find that form by clicking the "Sign Me Up" button.

Simply put without volunteers The MatSu Relay would be impossible to put on. Volunteers serve critical functions from helping with the course set-up/breakdown to being the friendly face at each exchange managing team traffic. Each team is required to provide one (1) volunteer. More are gladly accepted though and we promise to be nice to them.
Bring Your Own Volunteer to meet the volunteer requirement. Remember that friend you helped move who "owes you one"? Well time to call in that favor. Even though volunteering for The Matsu Relay is a lot more fun than helping anyone move.
The simple solution for fulfilling the volunteer requirement is to participate in our Hire-A-Volunteer program. We work with local non-profits who provide volunteers in exchange for a donation to their group. This is a great way to support local groups and have your participation in The Matsu Relay give a little back to the community.
|Through 8/25||8/26 — 09/08|
A team can ecide to change from BYOV to Hire-A-Volunteer up until two months before race day without penalty, you need to contact the race director to make the switch. Once a team selects Hire-A-Volunteer no changes can be made.
