Themed laps are a way to add some fun and amusement to the long hours that we walk during relay. Whether it is wearing a silly hat, showing international pride and awareness or remembering our furried friends, these themed laps are totally optional but fun to participate in or simply enjoy the efforts of those who do. Feel free to interpret each theme with all the creative energy that embodies Second Life!
