From 1978 to 2006 the PEI Region of the Canadian Red Cross organized the “Red Cross Relay” with the help of many volunteers. In 2007 a team of volunteers took over organization of the event under the new title “Red Island Relay”. In 2011 Cycling PEI took over the event and are looking to grow the event and keep it operating. We want to offer a first class event and get back some of it’s former prestige as one of the premier sporting events on PEI.
