The Dixie200 Relay

March 22-23, 2013



The Dixie200 Relay is a unique, overnight relay adventure in which you and 11 friends run 200 scenic miles from Atlantato Birmingham. The Dixie200 Relay begins just outside of Atlanta and runs on the Silver Comet and Chief Ladiga trails. This scenic course will take you through fields, forests, and rolling hills as you finish outside of Birmingham at Oak Mountain State Park.

The Dixie200 Relay will be held March 22-23, 2013. Beginning near Atlanta, the first flight of teams will start the 200 mile relay around 6:00 am on Friday morning March 22. Over the next several hours, additional sets of teams will depart on their overnight journey. Teams will begin arriving at Oak Mountain State Park around noon on Saturday to conclude their Dixie200 Relay experience.

Teams for the Dixie200 Relay are generally made up of 4 to 12 people who split 36 legs. For instance, each person of a 12 person relay team will run three legs over distances varying from 3 – 10 miles. Each team will provide support vans to drop off and pick up runners at designated exchange zones along the 200 mile route.

The Dixie200 Relay is great fun for everyone - you don't have to be an ultra runner to enjoy it. For a 12 person team the distances and training are similar to that of a half marathon.
