The Lynn Woods Relay
We are lucky to have Lynn Woods right in our neighborhood. There are miles of trails there, and each summer there are weekly (Wednesday) trail races at Lynn Woods between 2.5 and 8 miles. This culminates at the end of the summer with the Lynn Woods Relay. Teams of four assemble and each racer covers the 2.5 mile loop. Many other clubs from around New England head to Lynn, and if you’re into running and spending time with your teammates, help us defend our turf at the Lynn Woods Relay.
The 26 x Mile Relay
Held every summer by the Somerville Road Runners, the 26 x mile relay is probably the most efficient, exciting, and chaotic way to run a marathon. Each club participating, including Wicked Running Club for the last few years, fields a team of 26 to run a mile on the track. It doesn’t require the training of a marathon, doesn’t do the same kind of long-term damage on your legs, is a lot faster than a marathon, and is more fun if you like to cheer on your friends.
In 2016, the top three teams finished within 100 meters of each other, and Wicked finished fifth overall. Let’s win next year!
Mill Cities Relay
Save the Date: The 2016 Mill Cities Relay is on Sunday, December 4th!
The Mill Cities Relay is an unparalleled New England running tradition. As a member of the Mill Cities Alliance, Wicked Running Club offers its members the opportunity to run this 27-mile relay race from Nashua, NH to Lawrence, MA and partake in the lively afterparty.
With men’s, women’s, and mixed teams in many different age divisions, we should have teams available for anyone who wants to race and forge friendships. The race offers legs of 5.4, 4.75, 2.5, 9.5, and 4.75 miles. In 2015, Wicked Running’s men’s open team finished third overall, and our men’s masters’ team finished second in its category.
