—What Is The MatSu Relay

This is a relay that a team can finish in just one day with a group of just six. It's a great way to get your running shoes dipped into the world of relay races. We welcome runners and teams of all capabilities, from the elite to the mostly walking. All teams intermingle as they progress through the course, and everyone gets the finish line swag.

Volunteers Are Awesome & Required

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.

Two Options To Meet Team Volunteer Requirement

1. B.Y.O.V.

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.

2. Hire-A-Volunteer

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 8/16 8/17 — 09/07
All Teams $125 $250

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.
