2013 Reach The Beach Relay Series

The New Balance REACH The Beach (RTB) Relay Series offer some of the highest quality race experiences in the United States. The RTB Relays take place in picturesque Massachusetts during the late Spring, New Hampshire during the start of the New England foliage season, and the Jersey Shore in October.

The relays consist of (a maximum of) 12 person teams that will rotate through 36 transition areas as they cover the approximate 200 mile distance of the race.

This means that each relay team member will run 3 legs of varying lengths and difficulty and will cover an average total distance of ~16.6 miles. There will also be an Ultra Distance division that will have a team limit of 6 members. In this case, the average distance covered per Ultra Distance Team runner would be ~ 33 miles.

The runners will rotate in a set order once the race begins and will be obligated to follow this rotation until the final runner REACHes the Beach!

Registration for RTB:MA, RTB:NH, and RTB:NJ 2013 are currently open – www.rtbrelay.com
