Statement, September 5, 2021: It is with great sadness that we announce that we will be canceling the 2021 Wild Rogue Relay. With Covid surging, ICU beds in short supply, and air quality issues affecting much of our course, we cannot in good faith move forward with our race. We have been in contact with our registered teams regarding refunds and deferrals to 2021. We appreciate your understanding of the difficult decisions that we face. We look forward to a true return in 2022, and we hope to see all of you there.
Statement, August 16, 2021: As you are all aware, Southern Oregon has seen surges in both Covid cases and poor air quality due to surrounding fires. Our Wild Rogue Relay team is evaluating these issues on a regular basis, as your health and safety is our number one concern as we approach race day. Please know we will keep everyone up to date on any possible event changes. For now, we hope that over the next few weeks we will see some positive changes and can move forward as planned. Thank you for your continued support, and please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
After careful consideration and in order to provide the best possible race experience for all, we have made the decision to hold the 2021 Wild Rogue Relay in September. The dates may be different this year, but the unforgettable running experience will be the same. 2020 team captains have been emailed instructions about their options for the 2021 race. More registration details can be found here.
In order to keep everyone running safely and happily, we have implemented some additional COVID-related policies. Please review this information here and be prepared to sign an electronic medical waiver one week prior to the event to be eligible to run with us.
One of the most unique, scenic, wilderness relay courses in the United States – relay race runners will trace the wild Rogue River through the Siskiyou Mountains to the wild Oregon coast over this 221 mile course.
The Wild Rogue Relay consists of 12 person, 9 person or 6 person ultra teams that rotate through 36 transition areas. Each relay team member runs 3 legs of varying lengths and difficulty and will cover an average total distance of 18-20 miles. We will begin the 221 mile relay race just outside of Jacksonville, Oregon on the shore of Applegate Lake, and it will end at the beautiful Azalea Park in Brookings, Oregon. Bring your 12-, 9- or 6- person team to Southern Oregon for this overnight relay race.
