FGCU Hosts 4th Annual 50-Mile Relay Sponsored by Elevation Burger, Nov. 30
11/7/2012

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Florida Gulf Coast University's Campus Recreations and the Honors Program host FGCU's 4th Annual 50-Mile Fly-by-Night Relay sponsored by Elevation Burger, Friday, Nov. 30 from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Teams of 5-8 members will complete a race of 50 miles on the FGCU campus. Each leg of the race will be a 2-mile loop around campus, so members need only be able to run, jog or walk 2 miles at a time. For a team of 8, that means only 3 to 4 loops over the course of up to 10 hours.

Cost per team is $190. The event will support Gulf Coast Humane Society and the Honors Program at FGCU. Each member will receive a dry-fit shirt and a free meal at Elevation Burger.

This year, all registration is online. The application can be found at http://www.active.com/running/fort-myers-fl/4th-annual-fgcu-50-mile-fly-by-night-relay-2012. Team spots are limited and early registration is encouraged.
