Points can be earned by running, walking or volunteering at these two premier events and immediate family members are also eligible to participate. Winning organizations receive a traveling trophy and recognition at a Drake University athletic event.”In its first year, this program was an unqualified success,” said Blake Boldon, Franklin P. Johnson Drake Relays Director. “We saw companies of every size participate with employees at every level in the organization celebrating their achievement together on the Blue Oval.  Whether volunteering at one of the events or competing for age group awards, it was invigorating to see Central Iowa’s work force participate and support America’s Athletic Classic.  This program has transformational potential for our community and the events.”The 2020 Relays Wellness Challenge will continue at the 52nd Annual Drake Road Races on Sunday, April 19 and at the Grand Blue Mile on Tuesday, April 21. Enrollment begins in October with the opening of the Drake Road Races registration.
