Tanglewood Virtual Relay Run
The purpose of the relay is twofold, to herald the beginning of the Tanglewood season, as well as to raise money to support BSO activities including the education and youth activities related to the Tanglewood season.
Founded in 2008, the Tanglewood Relay is the brainchild of BSO musicians Todd Seeber (bass) and James Cooke (violin). Both orchestra members are active runners who aspire to show people how close Tanglewood is to Boston. "If we can collectively run 150 miles to Tanglewood in 24 hours, then anybody can drive 2 hours to enjoy a concert," Todd Seeber says. With the return to live, in-person performances, as well as the continuation of digital offerings on BSO NOW, the Tanglewood Relay 2021 furthers these institutional imperatives by offering two ways to participate: virtually from around the world, as well as in-person.

The 2021 Tanglewood Virtual Relay Run will take place from June 1-July 3 from any location you choose!

All virtual runners will be invited to join the Tanglewood Virtual Relay Strava Club, using the free Strava App. In the Club, you can share your latest runs, walks, and bikes, interact with other Club Members, and keep track of everyone’s progress. More details and instructions will be emailed upon registration.
