The Comstock Odyssey Relay 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 is on the last 6 legs of the RTO course.  It joins the RTO in progress.  It is just on RTO Saturday.

Those 6 legs total about 30 miles.

You will finish at the Finish Line Festival in Reno along with all of the RTO and Capital Odyssey Relay teams.

Start times will be early on RTO Saturday morning at approximately 7 a.m. depending on your team’s projected total time to complete this relay.

The maximum number of runners that you can have on your team is six (6).  You set up your runner line-up for your team. You should run in the order of your line-up. Race178 does not need to receive your line-up.

The first year of the Comstock Odyssey Relay was 2015.

This is a great relay option if you want to try a road relay but you don’t want to or cannot commit to the time and scope of the RTO main event. At the other end of the spectrum for those runners who are “retiring” from running more RTOs, this is a way to run a less involved relay and stay connected to the RTO.
