Given the extreme distance of the race, there are several rules and stipulations to know. For instance, designated sleep areas will be marked along the route and racers must provide their own large vehicles—personal or rental—for team transportation along the route. See the FAQ here for more info.
Typically, when people have friends or family in town, they show off their city by cramming in as many attractions and sights as possible. The four brothers behind the Sasquatch Relay take that approach to its logical extreme, orchestrating 75- and 190-mile relay races that spotlight their native region of Puget Sound. The trek leads teams of 6 or 12 in a one- or two-day journey through the shadows of Mount Rainier and the Northwest's sea of evergreens. At a party at the finish line, runners celebrate and share their surprise over how much shorter Sasquatch looks in person.
