Description

2025 - SOLD OUT - Interested teams should join our waiting list!  Only the team captain needs to join the waiting list. Waiting list teams will be contacted with more info in the Summer. Also, check out our new event, the Ville to Ville Sprint Relay, on September 28, 2024!

The Ville to Ville Relay celebrates the beautiful region from Asheville, NC to Greenville, SC. It is a 72-mile team running event traveling from the peaks to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, through local craft breweries, and into quaint southern towns. 

The 8th Annual event will be held on April 12, 2025. The first flight of teams will start the relay around 5:00 am in Asheville, NC. Over the next few hours, additional teams will depart on their journey through the Carolinas. Each team will consist of three to six runners who will split 12 legs ranging from 3-9 miles. Each team will provide its own race vehicle to drop off and pick up runners at designated transition areas along the course route. Ville to Ville teams will arrive at Hampton Station in Greenville, SC between 3:00-8:00 pm for a finish line celebration, including music, food, and craft brews.

Team Payments

All teams will be required to pay a deposit of $300 during your initial registration and will have the option to pay the entire fee of $750. Teams that only pay the deposit must pay the remainder of their team fee ($450) by midnight on January 15, 2025.  Teams with unpaid fees on January 16, 2025, will lose their spot in the race and their non-refundable deposit. Team rosters should be finalized by March 5, 2025. There is a 5.5% processing fee on all online payments.

Race Theme

Who's ready to CELEBRATE the 2025 Ville to Ville while giving a nod to your favorite holiday?  Break out the Groundhog's Day earmuffs or the New Year's Eve glasses for a run from the mountains to the foothills.  If your birthday is your favorite, maybe pick your second favorite because clothing is required.  Represent one holiday as a team or your own personal favorites!  We can't wait to commemorate your special days with our favorite race of the year!

Team Captain

Each team will have a team captain (we will initially use the name and contact info of the person registering.) We will provide regular race information and updates for the team captain on our Captain Resources page and through monthly email newsletters. Team Captains can be transferred at any point to another person. Existing captains should email info@villetovillerelay.com and Cc the new captain if they request a captain change.

Team Pace

To make it to the post-race party in one day, it is mandatory to have a team pace of 11:00 minutes per mile or less.  This doesn’t mean that everyone on the team has to run at this pace, but it does mean that if you have slower team members, you will need faster team members to keep your team on track.

You will estimate a team pace when you register your team with an average min/mile pace for all runners on the entire course.  For a 6-person team, each runner will run twice between 3-9 miles, so a 10K time average would be expected. Final team pace estimates will be due on March 5, 2025.  Visit our team resources page to see our pace calculator to help with your estimation.

Cancellation & Weather

This is a rain-or-shine event. The race director has the right to change the course or event in case of inclement weather or state restrictions. More details on our weather policy can be found on our team resources page.
