Waterton Glacier Relay

One thing both Amy and I enjoy doing is running. I find it to be relaxing and a good way to just chill while still getting a workout. While running by yourself for fun or exercise is awesome, we really enjoy doing 5K, 10K, and half marathons. Our FAVORITE is a good old fashioned relay race.

We did the Waterton-Glacier Relay in 2011 and it was a blast. It sounds cliche, but what is better than hanging out in the mountains/on a mountain highway all day with 12 of your friends?

The race started early in Cardston, Alberta and wound up and down highways and back roads where the mountains meet the prairies to West Glacier, Montana. Between legs we cheered our teammates on, snacked, laughed, napped in the VW van, read... It was a full day of running and chilling. Perfect combo.

100 Miles. 4, 8, or 12 person teams. Gorgeous scenery.

This year's registration for the relay is open until the 21, which is race day! If you can't make it this year we really encourage to look for races in your area you can do with friends. What a better way to spend your time than being outside and getting your fitness on? Oh, and wanna be on our team next year? Cause we're in. I wouldn't pass up an opportunity to be here, ever.
