This year we are introducing a new marathon relay that starts at the same time as the full marathon, 7:00 a.m. Runner #1 starts at the iconic Reno arch and runs to Crystal Peak Park in Verdi, NV to the half way point where Runner #2 picks up and returns back to downtown Reno.
Thinking about running a half marathon? You should consider doing our new marathon relay with a friend, co-worker, gym buddy or family member.
Have you participated in the Dolan Auto Group's Downtown River Run half marathon before? If you have, then you already know most of the first section of the course. This is a good asset if you're planning to do it again or want to improve your time.
But maybe you're ready to try a new challenge...
Mentor a Friend
If you're looking for a new challenge, mentor a friend who has never run a half marathon before. Let them know what the Downtown River Run 13.1 course is like.
Help a friend train for their event.
Team up with them and you can experience a new half marathon course -- the 2nd half of the Downtown River Run marathon course.
Say you and your friend are already avid half marathon runners yet want to see how fast you can run a marathon as a team, this will prove to be a good way to do that.
If you know someone running the full marathon, you and your teammate can see if the two of you can keep up, stay with, or beat them in a friendly competition. Think of how much fun this could be! Register here for the new 26.2 Relay Today.
See you April 30th!
