Welcome to the 2017 Online Temple to Temple Relay!

Each year a student activities committee organizes a local Rexburg Temple to Idaho Falls Temple relay race. (See their webpage here.) We thought this year it would be fun if all of our instructors could run with the home office team and the "Online" Temple to Temple race was born! The idea is for the community to log enough miles to get us all from the San Diego, CA Temple to the Manhattan, NY Temple while the home office runs in the Rexburg race! Whether you want to participate by walking, jogging, or a combination of the two... "wogging," we will count your miles and achieve our summer goal. We have from May 4th to June 4th to log a total of 2,769 miles!

Heres how you can participate:

  1. Start running or walking! This can be on the treadmill, around the park, or a walk around your neighborhood.
  2. Keep track of your miles.
  3. Submit your miles by clicking on the "log miles here" button.
  4. Bonus points if you can take a selfie in front of a local temple. Tweet the pics to #onlinerelay or upload them here on our relay page for a chance to win a "water station" goodie bag. 

The home office will then update the race map every day with the new total so that we can all see how far we've gone. 

Join us in what has become the first annual Online Temple to Temple Relay!

What's a race without a water station?

In 10 select cities along the run will be a virtual water station. If your recorded miles for the day get us to that city you will receive "water station" bag full of BYU-I goodies which will be sent to your home.

Tweet a pic in front of a temple to #onlinerelay WITH the #onlinerelay written on something in the picture for a chance to win a "bonus" water station bag full of BYU-Idaho awesomeness. 

Example pic below. (#onlinerelay has to be in the picture not just the tweet.)

Congratulations to our winners for reaching our water stations! We have arrived at our final water station city in Manhattan at 2769  miles. The joggers whose miles get us to the final water station city are sent a water station package from the home office. Our  winners are Sharla Nielson,  Daina Romney, Anna Steadman, Donna Stapely Rachael Pippin, Katherine Bronson, Eric Blanchard, Ivy Hammond, Lori Taylor and Mike McCormick! Thank you to everyone who has participated in the #onlinerelay.
