Event Overview


The Colonial Relay /70 is a unique, one-day relay adventure in which you and five friends run 70+ scenic miles through the heart of the Virginia. The /70 follows the last 12 legs of the Colonial Relay /200. It begins just outside of Richmond in Hanover, continues onto the Capital Trail, then finishes at Jamestown Beach Park in historic Williamsburg.


The first flight of teams will start the 70-mile relay around 4:00 am on September 14, 2019. Over the next several hours, additional sets of teams will depart on their journey to Williamsburg. /70 teams will start to finish around 2:00 pm that afternoon.



From casual joggers to serious racers, this event is great fun for everyone. Teams are made up of 2 to 6 people who split 12 legs. 

Each team will provide support vans to drop off and pick up runners at designated exchange points along the 12-leg route.
