Full Gandy Relay

Sat. September 16, 2023
Exciting Changes! Start in Danbury and Finish at Trap Rock Brewery in St. Croix Falls.

Celebrate the end of summer by tackling 47 miles in one day. Travel via foot and bike from Danbury to St. Croix Falls, WI in a four-person relay-style race. You’ll explore the entire length of the Gandy Dancer State Trail’s southern segment. If you really want a challenge, take on this adventure with a three or two-person team, or tackle it solo!

Teams of 4, 3, 2 or 1 will cover 47 miles in sections designated for running, biking and hiking. While one of your team members is on the course, the rest of your team will drive ahead to the next transition zone. One support vehicle is encouraged per team to keep transition areas manageable.

There are a total of 7 segments, which include 3 running, 3 biking and 1 hike. The running segments range in length from 4.1 miles to 5.8 miles. The biking segments range from 8.2 to 12.2 miles. And the hiking segment is 2.1 miles. Your team collectively decides which segments each team member will take. One member of the team will be on the trail at a time. A State Trail Pass is required for team members riding bike 16 years of age and over. Passes are available at the start line.

Sept. 16 event: This event will happen rain or shine. The Sept. 16th event is unsupported and unofficially timed. A suggested $25/person registration includes a t-shirt and post event gathering at Traprock Brewery in St. Croix Falls. Starting point is Blueberry Park in Danbury, WI at 9:30am. Relay starts at 10:00am. The reason for the later start time is so that participants will finish mid-afternoon at a BREWERY with a FOOD TRUCK!
