Do the full 50K alone — or with the help of teammates.

Well, folks, the Schuylkill River Relay & 50K is back for another year of competition with your best running buddies. This year, the 50-kilometer race (that’s roughly 31 miles, guys) is scheduled for April 21, giving you just a few months to get in shape for the big day.

Here’s how it’s going down this year: Registration opens tomorrow, January 19, at 10 a.m. When it does, you’ll have the option to sign up as an individual — meaning you’re going to slug the whole 50 kilometers alone — or as a relay team. Teams can be made up of either three or six runners, who can divvy up the six legs of the race — which are each between five and six miles — between them.

The relay will start and finish at Saint Michaels Park. The course will follow the SRT southeast, with a turnaround point at Conshohocken Brewing Company.

And the best part: After you’re finished running, you’ll then get to party with your teammates (and a whole host of other sweaty athletes) at the finish line with Sly Fox Brewing Company’s SRT Ale. Additionally, there will be live music, food trucks, and lawn games to keep the endorphin high going long after the race is over.

There’s only space for 250 teams, so if you and your crew are set on participating, don’t wait to sign up tomorrow. Registration is $92 for an individual, $154 for a team of three, and $229 for a six-person team. Registration will soon be open here.
