Approximately 400 students and employees will compete in a 37-mile relay Saturday morning, Sept. 18, as they run from Rexburg to Idaho Falls in the second annual Temple-to-Temple Relay.
“The relay is an event many people have looked forward to all year,” said Doug Stutz, an advisor in the Activities Program. “In addition to the fitness aspect of the event, the social aspect is really great. We hope everyone will have a lot of fun while they develop healthy habits for the future.”
Each of the 58 registered teams will begin at the Latter-day Saint meetinghouse directly west of the Rexburg Idaho Temple in a staggered start. The team with the slowest projected time—according to 5k times turned in at registration—will begin at 7:10 a.m. The fastest team will begin at 8:30 a.m.
