100 Miles, 21 Legs
The Red Eye Relay is an all-nighter. It’s a ridiculous challenge that brings teams of runners a step away from the average run, a race that adds sleep deprivation to the already difficult task of running multiple races in one night. What goes together better than running yourself silly and staying up all night? Well, maybe peanut butter and jelly, but what the heck? The fun starts on a Saturday evening at the Upland Brewing Co. Bloomington Brew Pub (350 W. 11th St., Bloomington, IN). From there, goofballs get giddier as the course winds through some of the hilliest terrain that the midwest has to offer before a grand finale finish on Sunday morning back at the brewery.

2012 was Upland Brewing Co.’s first year to put on the Red Eye Relay. We had great time and learned a lot. Improvements you can expect in 2013 are RER tech shirts with your registration, an included beer at the finish line, better road markings, and an amp’d up breakfast spread.
A portion of proceeds from the race will benefit a great local cause, the Enis Furley Foundation.
The theme for 2013 is RAD RED!
