In addition to the full relay race, there will also be separate 5K and 8-mile races, as well as a triathlon that incorporates the run, paddle and pedal pieces of the challenge.

The 5K race will begin at 8:30 a.m.

Participants can pick up their race packets Friday from 2 to 7 p.m. at Sportsman and Ski Haus at Whitefish.

Awards and a raffle will be held after the race at City Beach.
