The Team Relay course is the same as the marathon course. Participants must have a minimum of three or a maximum of four runners per team. Distances covered by each relay runner differ slightly. If a team consists of three members, one member will be required to run two relay leg distances (they can be consecutive legs but they do not have to be).

1st Leg – Start Line to O’Rorke Bridge (approx. 5.5 miles)

2nd Leg – O’Rorke Bridge to Maplewood Rose Garden (approx. 5.5 miles)

3rd Leg – Maplewood Rose Garden to O’Rorke Bridge (approx. 7 miles)

4th Leg – O’Rorke Bridge to Finish (approx. 8 miles)

Each Relay Team member will receive a bib with your team name on it.  None of these bibs will have the timing chip attached to it.  Your team will also receive ONE bib with the word “TIMING” on it.  This timing bib has a timing chip attached to the back and it will be attached to a belt.  This belt will have to be passed & worn by each member of the team while running their respective legs.  For example, if you are running “Leg 1”, you will wear the belt with the timing bib and after you are done with your leg, you will then pass it to your team member who is running “Leg 2”, etc.  Whoever is running the final leg needs to be wearing this belt to be sure that your team time registers at the finish line.

Shuttle Buses will be available to take you to the relay points and to pick up Relay runners and return them to Frontier Field. The Shuttle Bus schedule can be found here. We ask that all runners are patient in terms of waiting for the shuttle buses to return you to Frontier Field.  The course must be navigated by the buses as safely as possible, so your patience will be greatly appreciated.  Shuttle buses will be provided to only participants that are wearing their race numbers.  No spectators will be allowed on these buses.

Each relay exchange point will have water available for Relay participants & porta-potties. 



The two Relay exchange points are the O'Rorke Bridge and the Maplewood Rose Garden.  Shuttle Buses from Frontier Field will be provided (more information below).  If Relay participants prefer to drive to their exchange or get dropped off, there is parking available at both locations. Please see below:
O'Rorke Bridge
The Relay area can be accessed from Marina Drive (off Pattonwood). Drive to the end of Marina and instead of turning left and going under the bridge, turn to the right and use the parking lot of Voyager Boat Sales. There will be no parking allowed under the bridge or by the docks. Volunteers will be there to assist you with where it is safe to park. To see a detailed map of the O'Rorke Bridge Relay exchange, click here.
Maplewood Rose Garden
There will be no parking allowed in the lot attached to the Rose Garden.  There is a parking lot located on the corner of Driving Park & St. Paul that will have Relay parking.  You will take a very short walk over the Driving Park Bridge to get to the Rose Garden.  To see a detailed map of the Maplewood Rose Garden, click here.
