How The Relay Works
  • All relay team members must run a minimum of 3 laps
  • THIS EVENT IS AGE GRADED: All team times will be calculated based on Age and Sex to even the teams out performance wise.  The fastest team may not be the winner.
  • Team captain or 1 individual from the team must be responsible to pick up team packet. 
  • All relay teams members will have their own personal bib associated with their name and age. You must wear your bib and also carry your team’s baton with the chip in it.
  • All relay teams must wear the bib they are issued.  Each person on each team gets 1 bib.  You can run in ANY ORDER you choose, but you must wear your bib and have your baton.
  • Your relay baton is your timing chip. You must carry your baton the entire race and hand it off to the next person. You baton must cross the checkpoint and finish line. If you lose your baton, you are disqualified.
  • Any changes to your team must be submitted prior to the race or your team is subject to DQ.
  • HANDICAP - Each individual is handicapped and that helps the entire team.  For example: if you are a 50 year old female you have a 24% handicap.  Because you are part of a team that has 10 legs or a 10 person team, you bring your teams handicap down from 100% (which is 0 handicap) to 97.6%.  Now your overall time is multiplied by .976.  The more people on your team with a handicap, the lower your overall team's handicap score will be.  This takes a lot of strategic thinking, its not all about the handicap, and it is not all about being the fastest either.  Handicap percentages below.
