It's All About Strategy for This Award...

You're looking over your relay team roster and while you love these guys/gals, if you're being totally honest with yourself, you know you're all not the most fleet-footed bunch around...

But that's okay, because with a little strategy your team could be taking home some prizes, baby!

How, you ask?

By running a total team time that is closest to one of two Zeal Bullz-eye times (without going over).

We will have a Zeal Bullz-eye time (averaging between an 8-10 min/mi)

The Zeal Bullz-eye time will be posted on our website and emailed out to all registrants a few days before the race.

Example:

If the Zeal Bullz-eye time was set at 27:46.51 - this would mean your team would need to average a 7:27 mile throughout the 6000 meter relay. Your team ends up running a total time of 27:26.8, but another team runs 27:46.89. But, because your team didn't go over the time, you would be the winner of the fast Zeal Bullz-eye Challenge!


And if  you're thinking those Bullz-eye time ranges may be too fast for your group, remember we're not talking about your 5K or 10K mile pace, but paces you can run for shorter distances (200-800 meters, usually). Below is a break down of paces for shorter distances for people who run anywhere between a 10-12 min/mi for a 5K:
