Gather your friends and register for the GAP Relay Presented by UPMC Health Plan, an unforgettable team running relay on the 150-mile Great Allegheny Passage!  Teams of four, six, or eight will start in Cumberland, Maryland on Friday, October 14, wind through the magificent Laurel Highlands, and end on Pittsburgh's South Side the next day.  Beautiful views from 14 bridges, the crunch of autumn leaves, and cool temps make the GAP Relay a stunning landscape for your team.  Each runner will tackle at least three legs (most legs are between two and seven miles each), and you'll pass the baton to a teammate with fresh legs at each of 24 supported exchange zones.  You'll don a headlamp for the overnight legs.  We'll have team awards, turn-by-turn directions, games and contests, plus food and refreshments at select exchange zones.

For 2022, there is a one-day 40-mile adventure option for teams of two to four runners on Saturday, October 15 -- so there’s an option for everyone to run! 

On top of a finisher’s medal and tech event shirt, every participant receives a team relay bracelet (your baton!), a swag bag filled with goodies. PLUS, each team captain will receive a FREE pair of shoes from Brooks Running. Every team gets to break the finish line tape as a group,  Enjoy an organoized  post-race party on Pittsburgh's South Side to celebrate your accomplishment
