Red Dog race adds Su­per Teams to the mix

Pilbara News - - Sport - Louise Alling­ham

Reg­is­tra­tions for the Red Dog Re­lay of­fi­cially opened at the Kar­ratha Leisure­plex last Thurs­day.

A new pro­gram of events and changes to the orig­i­nal re­lay were also pre­sented at the event’s launch.

This year the re­lay will have an ex­tended course, the ad­di­tion of a Su­per Team cat­e­gory, dis­counts for those who reg­is­ter early, and a part­ner­ship with The Quar­ter.

Event di­rec­tor Peter Kay said changes had been put in place to stream­line the re­lay.

“We’ve had to re­con­fig­ure a few things, but some of the re­lay legs are still the same,” he said.

“We’re just try­ing to make it se­quen­tial where we can.”

As in pre­vi­ous years, teams of four to six will share the run, pad­dle, drive, walk and swim legs of the re­lay across Kar­ratha, Dampier and Mill­stream Chich­ester Na­tional Park.

Groups will now have the op­tion to reg­is­ter as a Su­per Team, mean­ing each team mem­ber will com­plete one sec­tion of the re­lay solo.

Team­mates Clive Young, Vin­cent O’Shea, Mick Dun­stan, Michael Se­vic and Nikita Corey with event or­gan­iser Peter Kay.
