The 2025 Comstock Odyssey Relay will be held on May 31st. This is a relay from Carson City, Nevada’s Capital City, to Reno. This is a relay from Virginia City, the home of the famous Comstock Lode mining boom of the 1860’s and 1870’s, to Reno. This event joins the RTO in progress for the last 6 legs of the RTO.

Please be aware that in order to have a safe and orderly event we expect every runner and team to read the Runners Handbook. The RTO’s future depends on following the instructions in the Handbook.
