With the Hood to Coast Relay coming this weekend, I thought I would pass along some final tips that should help you have fun with your team-mates out there on the road this weekend.

I previously published an article on the training aspects of preparing for a multi-day relay like Hood to Coast.

Have fun out there. Hood to Coast is an amazing experience!
