We welcome returning and new teams to the 2016 Sawtooth Relay. If you are new to the Sawtooth Relay, we hope it will become a favorite on your event calendar.Our finisher and volunteer shirt will be a short-sleeved embroidered t-shirt. Teams of 6 using one van will complete 12 legs beginning at Stanley, Idaho's elementary school and finishing in Atkinson Park, Ketchum. The 62-mile course is open to running and walking teams and ultra-marathoners. If your team has one or more teammates that live within a 4 hour drive from the course you are required to provide a volunteer to assist the relay organization. See the volunteer menu tab on this website for more details.
The daylight course and start times provide teams with a view of the Sawtooth Mountains at dawn. The Stanley to Ketchum course will also provide spectacular views of the White Cloud Mountains to the east as participants wind their way south along the Salmon River. Don't miss the meadows of multi-colored wild flowers on each side of the highway along the Salmon River valley floor. Half way through the 62-mile course, participants will crest Galena Summit and view the Big Wood River drainage with vistas of the Pioneer and Boulder Mountain ranges.
Teams can travel to Stanley the night before the relay, camp out under the starlit skies with a glowing campfire nearby, swap stories, and bond. If you like modern conveniences stay in the AmericInn (208-788-7950) in Hailey.
Enjoy the post-relay party with great food, drinks and while listening to the live music. We will be serving Clear Springs Food trout fillets, brautworst, Simplot potatoes, Albertsons cole slaw, strawberry short cake, limeaid and Grand Teton micro-brewed beer. Tickets for food and drink items will be provided to each participant and volunteer at the completion of the relay.
Sawtooth Relay is a non-profit corporation benefiting two charities including the Kidney Institute at the University of Kansas and the Idaho Donor Network (www.yesidaho.com). We invite you to register to be an organ donor at the yesidaho.com website.
Invite your friends and family to meet you in Ketchum/Sun Valley and stay and play for the weekend. The relay is an opportunity to create new traditions and memorable moments.
Have a safe, fun-filled Sawtooth Relay.
