Section 6

There are several turns to look out for as you run through Cobden.

Here also you will find out why the number six runner on a team has to be someone special. As you leave Cobden you will climb a hill that seems to go on for ever. Near the top, though, you will be helped along your way by the noisy aclaim of the Bell Hill Gang.

At the very first relay, runners and organizers alike were astonished to find a party in progress at the top of Bell Hill. This block party has since become an annual tradition. Folks come from miles around just to watch the struggles of the runners.
