Legs Go wins Perimeter Relay

The men of Team Legs Go has won the 2020 Upolu Perimeter Relay, tackling the 104 kilometre trail in just nine hours, 24 minutes, and 40 seconds.

Ten teams competed in this year’s event, setting off from Sinalei Reef Resort between 2am and 7am, and ended at Tanoa Tusitala Hotel.

The race heads east from Sinalei and begins a steep climb at Samusu, through Tiavea and down to Falefa, then reaches the north coast of Upolu and until it reaches Apia. 

Right behind Legs Go, the team of Apia Hash House Harriers came the Phat Burger Big Usos with just nine hours, 32 minutes, and 42 seconds, who came first among the mixed teams and ran closest to their predicted time. 

In third place was Fatu Toa Black, a team of cross-fit athletes who ran the relay in 10 hours, 46 minutes, and six seconds.

Other winners on the day were Happy Feet who were the number one and only Master’s Team (over 40 years) and Here 4 Fun, the number one and only Women’s Team.
