Sawtooth Relay Leg Description: Leg 1

We are working on plans for the Sawtooth Relay to be held in-person on
Saturday, June 11, 2022. We hope to open registration soon.

Before we can open registration, we need to recruit several volunteers to
manage exchange zones on the course. This assignment involves working most
of the day (or night) of the race plus meetings before and after the event.
Having experience with a road relay is a plus, but not necessary. An
exchange manager cannot participate in the relay.

If you are interested, please write to us at info@sawtoothrelay.com or
call or text 208-853-1221.

We are getting photos from our team’s virtual Runs!

Registration for the 2019 Sawtooth Relay is open!

Veterans of Sawtooth Relay know the event needs hundreds of volunteers provided by the teams to work on race day. We also have about 25 managers that work before, during and after the relay.  Some of our managers have held these positions for most of the 17 years we have organized the relay and they are ‘retiring’.  We are looking for new managers to take their places.

If you would like to be a part of the Sawtooth Relay organizing committee, please send us an email (info@sawtoothrelay.com).

Start times, volunteer assignments and the handbook are available at Bandanna Running & Walking Saturday, May 18 from 2 to 4pm.
