Hello Cambridge Running Club and Somerville Road Runners!

Throughout the month of April, we will be holding a virtual dual meet consisting of 3 track events: the one mile (1609.34m), sprint medley relay (200m, 200m, 400m, 800m), and distance medley relay (1200m-400m-800m-1600m). This is a free event and will involve no prizes (except bragging rights of course). The scoring will be different from a traditional track dual meet, so read below for the rules and details!

Feel free to reach out with any issues, questions, or concerns!

  • Registration for the One Mile: Please select your designated club team during registration (i.e. Somerville Road Runners or Cambridge Running Club)
  • Registration for SMR & DMR: The captain of your relay team must create a team during registration and all 4 runners of that team must join your team.
    • Include either SRR or CRC in your relay team name to allow the race organizers to easily differentiate between clubs. Relay teams will not be co-ed.

  • Please check the distance of the track. Most should be 400m.
  • One mile is 1609.34m, not 1600m. There should be a one mile start line on most traditional tracks.
