Registration

The Relay Team Captain creates a team, determines the team division and pays for the entire team. Once the Team Captain has created and paid for a team, members can join that team. To register as a team member, go through the same registration link but choose “JOIN EXISTING TEAM” category rather than the “CREATE TEAM.”

A Mixed Team must have at least one member of the opposite sex. A team member must run at least one full leg, and individual runner may run up to four legs in any order chosen. Relay runners will be identified by their assigned relay bibs worn on the front and back. Exchanges will take place only at one of the designated exchange points. Teams making exchanges elsewhere may be subject to disqualification. 1st place teams in the Men, Women and Mixed divisions receive a free entry into next year’s Relay Race.
