It’s become a Park City tradition! The 8th annual Running with Ed (RWE) relay is May 20th, 2017. This 38-mile, 10 leg race traverses spectacular Park City, and gets you home in time to have a playdate or a date night. The course offers everything from trail to pavement, challenging climbs to fast downhills, easy legs for beginners and tough ones for experts. Winding past Olympic venues, iconic landmarks, neighborhood schools, and historic Main Street, this is Park City’s best!
Registration includes a cool RWE shirt, collectible finisher medal, and a rockin’ after-party guaranteed to please adults and the kids! Get your 5 to 10 person team together. If you’re really crazy, 2-person and solos are available! Don’t miss out on the race that’s a party!
Running with Ed’s course begins at the Newpark Field House at Kimball Junction, runs to Jeremy Ranch, Ecker Hill, the Utah Olympic Park, Canyons, Parley’s Park, Park City Mountain Resort, McPolin Elementary, Treasure Mountain, Trailside then back to Newpark. Running with Ed will offer you one inspirational run! Each exchange will be vying for ‘The Best Exchange” award. It’s like going to nine mini parties while running the race. This will be an awesome journey!
Water will be available at the exchange points, and water stations at the McPolin Barn, the trailhead by the Park City Ice Arena and Sports Park, and in Round Valley, and at the finish line. Please plan to carry water if you will need it more frequently..
There are 9 exchange points in the race. The wrist strap (baton) exchange occurs at each exchange along the course. The runner who is finishing his/her leg must pass on the slap wristband to the next team runner within the marker exchange zone and continue this relay-style to finish line. At all of the exchanges, there will be water and bathrooms. At most of the exchanges, there will be music and snacks.
Course Cut Offs
There are two cut-off points in the race.

All changes must be made by May 1st.
Starting times are staggered between 8:00 – 10:00am. Team captains will be assigned a start time several days before the race by email. Start times are assigned based on your team pace, entered during registration. It is important to give us your pace so we can start your team at the proper time. You don’t want to miss an exchange party because you started too early, or miss the Finish Party because you started too late!
