WHAT IS P2B?
Are you looking for a challenge beyond the typical road race and an event that will build lasting Team camaraderie...then you are ready for Peak to Brew. The Peak to Brew Relay is the Northeast’s longest most scenic overnight Team supported relay race at 220+ miles. Teams of 6-12 Runners and 1-2 Support Vans will traverse the course over 42 unique legs.
The course will take Teams through the heart of the Adirondack Park and some of the most beautiful areas in the Northeast. From an epic Start at the summit of Whiteface Mountain Veterans Memorial Highway to an unforgettable finish and celebration at the historic Saranac Brewery, the Peak to Brew Relay is one of the most unique and challenging events in the Northeast.
WHAT TEAM TYPES ARE THERE:
You + 11 Other Runners Split into 2 Vans conquering the 220+ mile ULTIMATE Relay course. Standard Team consist of up to 12 Runners split into 2 Vans that Leap Frog each other along the course. Van #1 Runners will run 4 separate Legs averaging ~20 miles in total distance, whereas Van #2 Runners will run 3 separate Legs averaging ~15 miles in total distance.
You + 5 Other Runners Split in 1 Van conquering the 220+ mile ULTIMATE Relay course. Ultra Team consist of up to 6 Runners all in 1 Van where each Runner completes 7 separate Legs of the Course. Each Runner will average ~40 miles in total over the 7 Legs of the 220+ mile course. If you are looking for the ULTIMATE Challenge then the Ultra Team is for you.
6 PACK TEAMS
Same as a Standard Team with the only difference being you are only registering 1 Van and 6 Runners. We will then pair you up with another 6 Pack Team to make a Standard Team. Why do this? This provides Teams an avenue to participate that can not get 12 Runners together. It is also a great way to meet some new friends who share the same thrill of Relay running.
