Brookings will host the finish line for the Wild Rogue Relay this Saturday, which will see more than 1,200 runners finish the 218-mile relay at Azalea Park.

This is the fourth year in a row the city has hosted the relay’s finish line and closing festivities.

The 36-leg relay begins on the shore of Applegate Lake in Jacksonville, Oregon before winding past Grants Pass and then through the Cascade Mountains to the Oregon Coast and down through Curry County before ending at Azalea Park in Brookings.

Regular teams will have 12 members running three legs each while ultra teams will have six members running six legs of each. Each leg varies in length and difficulty and teams will cross the finish line together.

Prizes include medals, T-shirts and pint glasses. For more information on the relay, including maps and results, visit the Wild Rogue Relay official website at http://thewildroguerelay.com/.
