The Emerald Necklace Relay is a 60-ish mile relay that traces the outer “necklace” of the Cleveland Metroparks. The course starts on Cleveland's west side in the Metroparks Rocky River Reservation and traverses some of the most beautiful areas of the parks, finishing on the east side in Mayfield Village at the edge of North Chagrin Reservation. The start is STAGGERED and based on projected finishing times. This allows all teams to finish at a reasonable time in the late afternoon so that we can all enjoy the finish line party!
Please see the race guide in the event guides tab, all members of your team are required to review this document. Friends, and volunteers can also gain insights into what is a new experience in local racing in Northeast Ohio – a dedicated team relay.
As mentioned above all team members are required to thoroughly review this guide and understand the responsibilities associated with being in a long distance team relay. The most important issue to be aware of is SAFETY! This is an OPEN COURSE RACE, which means all runners must follow ALL TRAFFIC RULES and trail etiquette .... you will be sharing the course with motor vehicles, other people enjoying the Metroparks, and perhaps even horses!
But there is one key to this relay.....encourage your teammates and HAVE FUN!
