Join Pacers for our third annual Mini Relay! Grab a few friends and embark on a fun running adventure! Wondering what the relay fuss is about? Curious to try out a relay without the financial investment? Come run the Mini Relay! Just $30 per TEAM, you will have a great time and have money left to register for a big ol’ relay (heck, you’ll have half an ultra-team already OR a quarter of a full team with you!). The Mini Relay is not an officially timed event, so have fun with it! Run it with friends, run it alone – whatever you are up for, we’ve got you covered!
Registration is very limited, so sign up today to secure your team’s spot!
The Mini Relay will take you from Old Town to Pentagon Row to Logan Circle to a fun finish (complete with post race party) in Clarendon! Runners will utilize sidewalks and trails to get from point-to-point. There are no road closures for Mini Relay, so please obey all traffic laws.

Packet Pick Up
Mini Relay is a store event and not a timed race. Therefore, there will be no pre-race packet pick up. Each team will check in on-site on race day to sign a waiver. All runners must check-in and sign a waiver.
The Mini Relay is a point-to-point run. The Mini Relay will start at Pacers Alexandria and will end at Pacers Arlington. Runners are responsible for getting themselves to each hand off location. Each location is located near a metro, please consider using metro as parking may be limited.
Mini Relay teams will have their choice of start time – 5:00PM, 5:30PM or 6:00PM. You will designate your start time choice when registering. Start times are self-selecting, however, we ask that slower teams utilize the earlier start options (5:00PM and 5:30PM) and faster teams utilize the later start option (6:00PM). Each team will check in at Pacers Alexandria. Check in will begin at 4:30PM.
