Relay Questions

Who can I have on my team?

Maximum of 4 people per team. Any Gender. Have to be 10 years or older. You don't have to have 4 but you cannot have more than 4. Having less than 4 just means more running per team member and puts your team at a disadvantage. Your choice, we obviously recommend teams of 4.

How does it work?

Runner 1 starts the race off while runners 2, 3, and 4 drive to the next aid station. When runner 1 arrives at the aid station he or she tags the next runner and they begin the next section of the course. Runner 1 joins the remaining runners and return to their parked car and drive to the next aid station. Rinse repeat.

We will have an aid station worker ensuring runners are only leaving the aid station when they have been tagged by their team mate.

How much running am I signing up for?

The race has 8 sections so a 4 person team means each runner will run 2 sections to maximize efficiency. Each section averages 3.3 miles so you will be running an average total of 6.6 miles.

Dropping off and Parking

You are allowed to drop your next runner off and then go park but you CANNOT sit and idle while you wait for your runner. Doing so will be grounds for your teams disqualification. You have to go park after dropping your runner off.

Driving

Each section is long enough for you to have time to pick up your runner and drive to the next aid station. Just have google maps ready to go with the next aid station. Aid stations are 5-10 minutes apart.

Awards

Male, female, and coed teams will all receive a plaque for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. 

Male team has to be all males

Female team has to be all females

*Coed team has to have at least 1 male and 1 female

Sections

See course map for details on each section. Teams may run the sections with any team member they choose. If one team member wants to run 3 sections so another only has to run 1, go for it.

Ideally you will want runner 1 to run after the other 3 have gone to maximize rest and recovery but you can have your team run in any order you want.
