The Fred Meijer White Pine Trail 200 Mile Relay's second year includes
36 relay "spurs" or legs, each ranging from 2 to 9.5 miles in distance,
spanning the Fred Meijer White Pine Trail
from Comstock Park to Cadillac in the State of Michigan. The Fred Meijer
White Pine Trail consists of both paved and dirt trail as it winds its
way through gorgeous Central and West Michigan.
Two types of team or "crews" can enter, an Ultra crew called
"Wrecking Crew" having 6 runners OR a standard crew called "Yard Crew"
of 7 to 12 runners. At the Fred Meijer White Pine Trail 200 Mile Relay,
your crew decides how many "spurs" or legs each runner runs and in what
Crews begin running (based on the predicted finish time...more on
that later) at 7:00am and continuing through Saturday morning, the crews
will start the run in staggered "waves" based on their estimated crew
"race paces" (the faster your crew's estimated race pace, the later in
the morning your crew will start).
This sequence continues for your crew, without stopping, day into
night and back into day again, until your crew finishes the race
sometime on Saturday, when you arrive in Comstock Park.
