Participate in the Fifth Third River Bank Run 25K without running the entire 15.5 miles. Grab a couple of friends or family members and participate as a 25K Relay group on Saturday, May 10!
A 25K Relay group consists of two to three participants who will cover the entire 25K (15.5 miles) distance. Each participant will run one leg that ranges from 3 to 7 miles. Your Relay group can have as few as two members competing. However, this will require that one member must run two consecutive legs. For example, if a group has only two members, the first runner must run the first two legs of the Relay and the second runner would run the third leg.
