    The Red Army Relay is an employee challenge where teams of up to 10 participants will compete in four different events throughout the day to collect points.  The better your team does, the more points you collect.  Complete all four activities to get the best chance of finishing on top of the leaderboard!  The winners will be announced on stage near the end of the event.

    Teams can be up to 10 employees, however some challenges only allow part of your team to participate at a time.  Be strategic, and stack your team with different strengths!

    No sign-up is necessary to enter your team, or to participate in the tow-a-truck, excavator rodeo, or pit stop challenges. However, due to limited capacity, you MUST pre-register your team to enter into the Karting Rally.

    Work with your team to complete the circuit of four challenges to collect points towards your final score.  Each station will have a board to record your team name,

    score at the station, and be verified by the station leader.  All boards will be collected at the end of the event and tallied to crown the winner.

    The Karting Rally is a single event within the whole Red Army Relay.  Completing the Karting Rally with your team will get you valuable points towards winning the Red Army Relay.

    The employee rally races are two hours each, with 15 minutes per driver in the team. The free lap sessions available to employees and family are 20 minutes each with multiple sessions throughout the day.

    Only six members are allowed on a karting team.  For those participating in the Red Army Relay, that means not all your members will be able to participate.  However, the remaining members can participate in the other three challenges to help earn their team points.

    Only Tomlinson employees are allowed to participate in the rally races. However anyone who has signed a waiver and has a valid driver’s license can participate in our free laps taking place throughout the day.

    All safety gear will be provided to racers at the track. However each racer is responsible for having closed toed shoes, long sleeves, full length pants, and hair ties to pull hair back.
