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)
TIMING INFORMATION FOR RELAY TEAMS
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.
