Beat the Train Down Main 10K/5K Relay

This coming Sunday marks the second annual Beat the Train Down Main 10K/5K Relay. The objective of this race is to beat the Metro Rail as it travels down Main Street from the University Heights station to Canalside. Runners can attempt to tackle the distance by themselves, or they can participate in a relay (two runner 5K). Either way, the point is to make some good timing by way of the Metro Rail route. In the end, the 10K/5K Relay is a benefit for Kevin Guest House.

Custom medals will be handed out for those who actually do beat the train. At the end, join the post race celebration at Canalside. Then allow the NFTA to offer you a free Metro Rail ride back to the starting line.
