Register your team.


This popular event continues to SELL OUT every year. We have attempted to make a fair system that allows new teams into the event via a drawing and also gives teams that competed in the previous year an opportunity for priority registration.

The race regularly features 650 teams making it the largest day-long running relay in the country. There are four ways to get your team registered. If your team is already registered Join Your Team Here.

  • Sponsors of the event receiving race entries as part of sponsorship package.
  • Teams that won a divisional or contest award in that race the year prior and received an “automatic invite” as part of their awards.
  • Teams that volunteered (8 or more volunteers) for 4 or more hours at that race the previous year and received an “automatic invite” as part of their compensation.
  • Award winning teams in other Market to Market Relay races within a 12 month period. (ie, award winning Iowa Team would qualify for Nebraska).

Registration is Easy & Flexible

What you need to get registered:


Previous-Year teams can register during the Priority Registration window. New teams or previous-year teams that did not register during Priority Registration will need to enter via the Drawing. During registration, team captains will enter Phone Number, Email Address, Mailing Address and Credit Card Payment Information.
