Eight runners, eleven hours and fifteen minutes, eighty miles.  

The River to River Relay, for those not in the know, is a punishingly hilly eighty mile trek across the bluffs of the Land of Lincoln. Eight (or fewer) determined souls hopscotch across the state to bring their team to, if not victory, at least a solid finish in time to hear the church bells in Golconda, get those finisher shirts and the requisite photo on the Ohio River.

You have trained.  Maybe you have completed your first race, now what?
