Check a marathon off your bucket list without covering the entire 26.2 miles on your own two feet. (Well, sort of …)

Solo runners and teams of up to six will run a collective marathon Sept. 20 at the car2go Marathon Relay. The race, for all ability levels of walkers and runners, features six loops of a 4.37-mile course that starts and ends at the Palmer Events Center.The race begins at 7:30 a.m. A post-race party will feature food, beer and music. Teams are encouraged to set up tents and tailgate.

Entry fee is $65 a person or $300 a team. Proceeds will benefit Livestrong, which will use them to create and maintain programs and services that support those fighting cancer. To register go to
