Race Description

The Temple to Temple Relay is a team running event that starts at the church immediately west of the Rexburg Temple and follows paths and roads to the church immediately south of the Idaho Falls Temple. The course totals 39 miles. The relay is open to all Brigham Young University-Idaho students, employees, alumni and their dependents. Team captains are responsible to be familiar with everything listed in this Temple to Temple Relay Handbook and to communicate pertinent information to team members.

Date & Time

Saturday, June 10th 2017. The relay starts at the church immediately west of the Rexburg Temple. Teams are assigned start times based on their team’s estimated time to complete the relay. Waves of teams start every 15 minutes. Slower teams are assigned start times closer to 6:40 am; faster teams closer to 8:30 am. NOTE: To participate in the Relay, a team must average running 11 minutes per mile or faster. Teams running slower would eventually fall outside the time when safety officials are scheduled to be on the course. Also, since runners run alongside vehicle traffic, they must be mature enough to act safely in such an environment.

It's too bad this race is scheduled at the exact same time as the Teton Dam Marathon. We would love to volunteer to provide communication support along the temple-to-temple route, but the marathon is our biggest event of the year. Maybe next time.

Great race

This is the second year my team and I have run this race. This year the organization was a little more scattered than in previous years. However, that had no bearing on how much fun my team and I had prepping, running and enjoying this race. Will do it again and again every year as long as I am able.
