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.

    Hi Cindy – just posted this year’s race information here – http://redislandrelay.com/2013/04/2013-race-sat-june-8th/ – check it out. No conflict with the bike ride! :-)

    This is the first time I have heard of this race. It sounds like a great charity event and one I will strive to take part in next year.
    The 1st annual Heart and Stroke Foundation bike ride is on Sunday June 3rd; is this not a conflict also? Given that the Heart and Stroke is one of the charities?

    Anyway, I hope you are able to increase awareness and I will be there next year.
