Description
**The 2020 Ville to Ville Craft Brew Relay has been rescheduled for November 7, 2020, and is Sold Out.

September 3, 2020 Update:

We are thrilled that the postponed Ville to Ville Craft Brew Relay will be held in person on November 7th!  The state of South Carolina has approved a special waiver for the event, and we are moving forward with plans to welcome your team to Greenville.  

Like most things in 2020, the course and race experience will look a little different this year. We will not be able to run in North Carolina because of the continued state restrictions on mass gatherings. The course will instead start and end at Birds Fly South Ale Project at Hampton Station in Greenville.  It will still include 12 legs and will be approximately 60 miles.  The slightly shorter course will allow us to better stagger team arrivals to the finish so that your team can safely enjoy a beer or two in small groups throughout the venue.  The final course will be announced by late September when all legs have been finalized.

We are also working hard to reduce congregating and touchpoints along the course and at the finish line celebration to protect our runners, staff, and volunteers.  As we plan to adjust our procedures in many ways to ensure safety, we remain firmly committed to providing your team with a great race-day experience. Please review our Relay Safe Commitment document to see all policy updates. 

We understand that many of you may not be ready to travel or participate in a group event despite new safety measures.  We will be offering a virtual option for these teams and mailing shirts, medals, and swag. Each virtual team will run the equivalent of the Ville to Ville course mileage on November 7th from their own locations. Further virtual details will be emailed to virtual team captains later this month. We ask that local teams participating in the virtual option pick up their team packet at our local packet pickup event if at all possible.

In order to move forward with planning, we need to know if your team can join us on the big day.  We ask that all captains communicate your team’s intent to participate in the in-person or virtual event using the Google Form emailed to you separately today. Intent forms are due by September 11th to guarantee shirts, medals, and swag for your team members.

We can’t wait to see you or cheer you on virtually in November!

The Ville to Ville Craft Brew Relay will be held on November 7, 2020. The first flight of teams will start the relay around 5:00 am at Hampton Station in Greenville, SC.  Over the next few hours, additional teams will depart on their journey through South Carolina. Each team will consist of three to six runners who will split 12 legs ranging from 3-9 miles. Each team will provide their own race vehicle to drop off and pick up runners at designated transition areas along the course route. Ville to Ville teams will arrive at Hampton Station and Birds Fly South Ale Project in Greenville, SC between 1:00-8:00 pm for a finish line celebration which will include music, food, and of course, craft brews.

TEAM PAYMENTS

All teams will be required to pay a deposit of $255 during your initial registration and will have the option to pay the entire fee of $705. Teams that only pay the deposit must pay the remainder of your team fee ($450) by September 26, 2020, at midnight.   Teams with unpaid fees on September 27, 2020, will lose their spot in the race and their non-refundable deposit. Team rosters should be finalized by October 3, 2020. There is a 5.5% processing fee on all online payments.

AGE & ID REQUIREMENTS

All runners must be 21 years old or older to participate in the Ville to Ville Craft Brew Relay and proper identification will be required during packet pick-up to verify age.

TEAM NAME

Be creative, but keep it classy. Your team name will appear in lots of public places, so make sure it is one that would make your mother proud. You will submit your team name during registration, but it can be changed until October 3, 2020.

TEAM CATEGORIES

Ultra Female (3 runners, all female)

TEAM CAPTAIN

Each team will have a team captain (we will initially use the name and contact info of the person registering.) We will provide regular race information and updates for the team captain on our Captain Resources page and through monthly email newsletters.

TEAM PACE

In order to make it to the post-race party in one day, it is mandatory to have a team pace of 10:30 minutes per mile or less.  This doesn’t mean that everyone on the team has to run at this pace, but it does mean that if you have slower team members, you will need faster team members to keep your team on track.

You will estimate a team pace when you register your team with an average min/mile pace for all runners on the entire course.  For a 6-person team, each runner will run twice between 3-9 miles, so a 8K time average would be expected. Final team pace estimates will be due on October 3, 2020.  Click here to see our pace calculator to help with your estimation.

CANCELLATION / WEATHER

This is a rain or shine event. The race director has the right to change the course or change the event in case of inclement weather.  More details on our weather policy can be found in our GUIDEBOOK.
