The Palmetto70 Relay
Moncks Corner to Charleston
March 24, 2018
Limited to the first 40 teams
What? The Palmetto70 Relay is a unique, one-day relay adventure in which you and five friends run 70(ish) scenic miles through the heart of the LowCountry. The Palmetto70 Relay is a 12 leg event that follows roughly that last third of the Palmetto200 course. It begins in Moncks Corner in the Francis Marion Forest and ends just outside of Charleston.
When? The Palmetto70 Relay will be held March 24, 2018. The first flight of teams will start the 70 mile relay around 3:30 am on Saturday, March 24th. Over the next hour or so, additional sets of teams will depart on their journey through the Low Country. Palmetto70 teams will start to finish around 2:00 pm that afternoon. Palmetto70 teams will be treated with additional camaraderie on the road from teams that are running the Palmetto200 starting in Columbia, SC on Friday March 23rd. The Palmetto200 teams will start to finish as early as noon.
How? Teams for the Palmetto70 Relay are generally made up of 2 to 6 people who split 12 legs. For instance, each person of a 6 person relay team will run two legs over distances varying from 3 – 10 miles. Each team will provide their own support vehicle to drop off and pick up runners at designated exchange zones along the 70 mile route.
Who? The Palmetto70 Relay is great fun for everyone - you don't have to be an ultra runner to enjoy it. For a six person team the distances and training are similar to that of running just a little more than a 10K.
