Relay day – It’s time….

Relay day is upon us, a cast of thousands have worked to put together the amazing 40 sim Relay circuit. The day begins with the opening ceremony at 10am SLT. Throughout the day there will be live TV streaming from the Relay telethon and bloggers across the grid will be documenting the events. For my part I hope to bring you a series of blogs as I slowly make my way around the circuit, talking to some of the teams and exploring the incredible builds that appear for just one day.

Where to begin?

The starting point is on the RELAY FOR LIFE sim ( where you can pick up a pedometer, a walk and talk device that will help you enjoy keep moving as your talk to your friends. From here you will be able to take a random teleport to help distribute the relayers across the circuit. If you are participating as part of a group then there is a special group teleport portal too


As always there will be a host of events to make your time at the Relay more interactive. The popular themed laps are a mainstay of the event and the schedule this year is below. Join in or take a break and cheer on the relayers as they pass by.
