On your mark... Get set...
The Capitol to Bay Relay has been delayed this year, and will take place on Sept. 9 instead of the traditional first week of August.
Organizers decided to delay the four-part race because of the warm weather and multiple events taking place on the original weekend.
Never miss a local story.
Registration for the race is open now.
Athletes may compete alone, in tandem or in full relay teams. The race begins with a 7.4-mile mountain bike course in the Capitol Forest, then transitions to a 22-mile road bike ride to West Bay Park. Competitors will then paddle around Budd Inlet, then run 4.5 miles through Priest Point Park.
A victory party following the race will take place in downtown Olympia.
