Law enforcement agencies throughout the region have been putting together relay teams to participate in the annual Baker-to-Vegas Challenge Cup Relay, a 120-mile relay race that starts in California and ends in Sin City.
Race organizers say that more than 275 teams have already signed up and that come race day, they expect more than 8,000 participants.
Sources within the Riverside Police Department say they’ve enjoyed participating in the relay in the past and are excited to do it again this year.
Other local teams are also participating, including ones from the Murietta Police Department, Corona PD, Beaumont Police Department and the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
The race is broken up into 20 different legs, they said, and will kick off at a set location on Route 127. The teams will start at different points in the day and the fastest runners will start off last.
The Baker-t0-Vegas relay is currently in its 30th year, organizers said, and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.
