    Here at IronHike, we use a "FlexRelay" format for each of our events.

    We call them "FlexRelays" because they are totally flexible. Each team member, whether in the Trail Buddy or Trail Team event, has no minimum or maximum laps, mileage, elevation, or time on the course. Teams manage who is on the mountain for how long and when according to conditions, fitness levels the needs of the team.
