Lucia Rein Two Person Relay

Lucia walked CLHM years before being diagnosed with cancer. She continued to walk the race while fighting. When it became difficult for her to breath and still wanted to participate. The Two Person Relay was created for her. Ideal for those who want to be part of the race and its cause but are unable to do the entire distance. 1st leg 7.5 miles, 2nd leg 5.6.

First leg starts with 10:00 am participants. Buses transport partners to the exchange and pick up the ones already done. We encourage you to take the buses. Covid guidelines will be followed.

Do not drive to the exchange, there are three buses circling and buses will have a difficult time turning around if cars are parked. 

During The Race

  • There will be Water and Gatorade at fluid stations every two miles.
  • Gels handed out at approximately mile 5.5
  • On Course Porta potties available at miles 3, and 10. One more at relay exchange mile 7.5, and if you spot one somewhere along the way, use it. If on our course, it’s game.
  • Main portions of The course will be closed to traffic.
  • Finisher’s Medal to all who cross the finish line
  • Professional Photography by Steve Kiel Photography on course and finish line.

The Motivational Mile –

A display of names honoring a loved one who has faced cancer and/or encouraging one of the participants. The names stretch along mile one and 11 reminding you with each step you take of the contribution you are making in the fight against cancer. To include the name of someone you would like to honor and remember in your run, submit a donation of $40 per sign. You may take the sign with you on your second round (mile 11.)

Pay by PayPal or send check with name of Honoree to PO Box 965 Rock Hill, NY 12775. Expect email from Race Director Myriam Loor verifying the information before the race. If you  do not get an email directly from Race Director at some point, yell at her preferably before the race. Remember she observes Lent and is not drinking at that time.

All Motivational Mile signs are confirmed before printing. If you didn’t hear from me…I don’t have it and you won’t see it.
