The Baker to Vegas Challenge Cup Relay race is a 20-leg relay race of 120 miles. It starts just outside of Baker, Calif., and finishes in Las Vegas at the Westgate. Since 1985, teams comprised of law enforcement personnel and invited guests have come to the desert to run the race.
This year, the race starts Saturday and ends Sunday. As a tribute to the victims of the October 1 shooting on the Las Vegas Strip, each of the 20 legs of the race will have a designated flag with photographs and names of victims.
Family and friends of the shooting victims gathered at the Westgate on Thursday for the unveiling of the flags.
