GOMR: Get Outside Mountain Relay
May 31 @ 8:00 am – Jun 3 @ 9:00 am

 

Sign up, set up camp, and enjoy!  GOMR is a unique team running relay festival.  Think of a wheel.  GOMR Nation is the HUB where camping, resting, playing, and community happens.  The SPOKES are the shuttle routes where we will be chauffeuring runners out to their starting points and back to GOMR Nation when they are done (no van rentals).  And the TIRE is the challenging and beautiful loop route around Alleghany County, NC.  We’re taking care of the transportation so all you have to focus on is running and having a great time.  Stake your claim, build a community, and live as a nation of Gomers for the weekend.  Haven’t you wanted to get to know runners in the “other van”?  Haven’t you wanted to get to know the other teams?  Haven’t you wanted to stretch out somewhere without the fear of being run over?  Well, GOMR is that and so much more.  Food, fellowship, music, games, and shade trees galore!  GOMR Nation opens May 31, 2018 for check in and camp setup.  Relay dates June 1-2.

In its first year, the market received national attention and is credited for driving thousands of motorists into the participating communities along U.S. Route 21. This year, the road market has expanded to include more than 110 miles of U.S. 21, stretching from Harmony, North Carolina, to Wytheville, Virginia
