TAPS will cover the cost of the race entry fee, lodging before and after the relay and transportation during the relay at no cost to you. TAPS will also provide illuminated running vests and a team shirt.
You will need to cover the cost of travel to and from the event, all meals and your running gear.
Lodging and Transportation
You will need to cover the cost of your transportation to and from Massachusetts. We will coordinate airport pickups if you choose to fly. The closest airport is Boston Logan International Airport (BOS). Plan to arrive at either our hotel or the airport by 6 p.m. Thursday, and plan your Sunday travel after noon. If you choose to arrive on Wednesday, you will be responsible for your own lodging. Please understand, too, that we will be running through the night on Friday. There will be places to catch a few hours of sleep at the major exchanges, but there is no formal lodging on Friday night (it's awesome).
Each teammate will run between nine to 20 miles. Worried about your speed or if you're going to need to walk? Don't be. We'll get there when we get there, but training is essential for this race. Training will start prior to the race, and you will train for three relay legs. You must be committed to training, or staying in good running shape, so that you can complete three runs with only several hours of recovery. We will hold weekly calls to share training plans and prepare for the race. View a training plan for beginning to intermediate runners.
