Event Overview


An amazing, one day relay adventure in which you and your teammates run 70+ scenic miles to finish at the beach and enjoy tuna and your beverage of choice after a job well done. 

The Tuna Relay /70 begins in the small town of Trenton, North Carolina and will join the Tuna Relay /200 for the last 12 legs of that race, running the length of one of Crystal Coast’s outer banks from Emerald Isle to Atlantic Beach before finishing at the beach.


The first flight of teams will start the 70-mile relay around 4:00 am on Saturday, October 26, 2019. Over the next several hours, additional sets of teams will depart on their journey to Atlantic Beach.

/70 teams will start to finish around 1:00 pm that afternoon to celebrate with the best post-race party you could hope for. We will have tuna and beer and the beautiful North Carolina coast and Atlantic Ocean.



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 70-mile route.
