The American Odyssey Relay is an 200-mile overnight relay, starting in Gettysburg, PA in the shadow of the Civil War battlefields and ending at the SW Waterfront in Washington, DC. This race is designed for teams of 12 runners, each of whom will run 3 legs. The American Odyssey Relay was put together by runners for runners and is quite possibly the most fun you’ll ever have running! Come on out and see for yourself!
If you don’t have the time (or energy!) to do the entire American Odyssey Relay, or if you just can’t stand the thought of spending that much time in a van with your sweaty friends, we have a great option for you! The Potomac Odyssey is a nine-leg, 57-mile relay beginning in Brunswick, MD on the Saturday of the American Odyssey Relay and running concurrently with the American Odyssey Relay. Teams will start at roughly 7:00 am depending upon their predicted pace. They will finish at the SW Waterfront and be a part of the overall American Odyssey Relay celebration party! Participants in the Potomac Odyssey receive separate t-shirts and compete for their own awards.
Like the American Odyssey Relay, the Reno Tahoe Odyssey is a 178-mile relay race best suited for teams of 12 runners, each running 3 legs. The Reno Tahoe Odyssey starts in downtown Reno. You will run along the Truckee River, travel through the Sierra Nevada mountains, along the shores of Lake Tahoe and through the northern Nevada desert.
