Capitol to Bay Relay would like to thank each racer for their participation. Each year, participants have made the race an exciting and growing success. Although the race is produced by the PARC Foundation, it would not be possible without the hundreds of volunteers and law enforcement officers that make the Capitol to Bay Relay experience happen. These volunteers go out of their way to provide you with the finest and safest racing environment possible. They appreciate knowing that you had a good experience.
