The Relay

How the Relay Works
  • A team captain purchases (a.k.a. registers) a team (it’s okay if the team captain does not yet know who’s going to be on the team – team members can join later).
  • The team captain sends invitation link (provided after registration) to prospective team members.  Things to consider:
    • There can be 3 or 4 people on one team
    • There are 4 legs.  If a team has 3 people, one member will need to do 2 CONSECUTIVE legs.
  • There is no need to tell us who is running each leg.
  • Medals will be given to finishers once they reach their exchange points (or the final finish line).

Age Requirement
  • Relay runners must be at least 12 years old on race day.
  • For runners under the age of 18, we recommend the following considerations:
    • An adult companion to assist with any transit on the relay shuttle system,
    • An adult companion to assist with transit to and from the race start and finish areas (if they are running the first or last leg in the relay), and
    • Allow the child to carry a cell phone on the course to utilize the RaceJoy runner tracking app to monitor the progress and location of the child while on the course.
Relay Registration Requirements
  • The team captain will automatically be charged the relay team fee on the credit card supplied during registration (see costs below).
  • A registration is not complete if an invalid credit card is used.
  • Team captains will receive an email with a link to your team page.
  • On your team page, you can change your team name, division, and add or invite your teammates.
