The Blue Ridge Relay

Blue Ridge Relay was voted THE Best Road Race in the 2015 "Best Of" edition of Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine. Thank you to the runners, volunteers, exchange zones and to Blue Ridge Outdoors!

 

The 209.2 Mile Blue Ridge Relay (BRR), which is one of the longest running relay races in the United States, takes place in the picturesque Blue Ridge and Black Mountains of Virginia and North Carolina. The BRR consists of maximum 12 person (4 person minimum) teams that rotate through 36 transition areas as they cover the 209.2-mile distance of the race. Each relay team member runs 3 legs of varying lengths and difficulty and will cover an average total distance of ~16.6 miles. The runners rotate in a set order once the race begins and will be obligated to follow this rotation until the final runner finishes in Asheville, North Carolina!

The BRR starts at Grayson Highlands State Park, Grayson County, VA, which is near the base of Mount Rogers (5729'), the highest peak in Virginia. The course primarily follows scenic, country roads as it winds its way through North Carolina's High Country to the finish in Asheville. The course features some of the region's most spectacular scenery including the balds of Grayson Highlands State Park, the New River, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mountain (5964'), and Mount Mitchell (6684'), the highest peak east of the Mississippi River.
