If you are a runner or are interested in hanging out with an awesome crowd check out the Tanglewood Relay Run it’s a 24-hour relay run from Symphony Hall in Boston, MA to Tanglewood in Lenox, MA. This is run each summer on the eve of the kick off to the Tanglewood season. There are 30 different legs to this relay. Runners have teams and take turns running a leg of the relay over the 24-hour period. Teams are made up of 10 to 14 runners, each runner will run up to 3 legs each of the relay. The purpose of the relay is twofold, to bring exposure and announce the beginning of the Tanglewood season, as well as to raise money to support the education and youth activities at the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
The relay is the brainchild of the Boston Symphony Orchestra musicians Todd Seeber ~ bass and James Cooke ~ violin who are both active runners and had the need to show people how close Tanglewood is to Boston. Todd Seeber said “If we can run to Tanglewood in 24 hours, then anybody can drive 2 hours to enjoy a concert,”. Over that last two years, the relay has grown from 15 runners to 40 runners, and this year, the Tanglwood Relay Run expects to see over 70 participants, pretty awesome.
