Relay Options Include 100km & 50km (one loop or two).
We are awarding one overall:
You may have up to 7 Relay Team Members total for the 100km Relay. 7 for the 50km Relay. You may have less, but no less than 3.
There will NOT be separate categories per number of teammates.
Your Team Members may run any number of legs in any order. We don't need to know your team's plan.
Only your Team Captain must check in. Only your Team Captain may pick up your team's packet.
We will most likely only send info to your Team Captain. He or she must pass along info to your team.
Relay Team Members may only make an exchange at a designated Aid Station.
Any Relay Team Member seen starting anywhere but at an aid station will get their entire team automatically disqualified.
Your team will have a single Team Bracelet. This will be your “baton”. You will each have to remove your bracelet from your arm & pass it to your next teammate at each relay exchange before parting ways.
There aren't a lot of parking spaces at most aid stations, therefore, please plan on your relay member also taking your vehicle back to the start/finish area or the next exchange location.
There is no parking at Tinaja & Conference Center Aid Stations. You have to park at Gorman Falls Parking Lot and walk, hike, jog, or bike past the big iron gate and down the dirt road. Tinaja is a little over a mile from the parking lot. Conference Center is about 1.5 miles.
So, if you're going to exchange at either of those aid stations, you'll need to plan accordingly (runner starting from there needs to jog into position early, and runner finishing there needs to be able to safely hike or jog the distance up the road to the parking lot).
Everyone's vehicle except for ONE designated transport vehicle must stay at the main start/finish area.
Whichever vehicle is designated as your team's Relay Transport Vehicle, will need an official race Relay Transport Vehicle Tag in it at all times. You can pick this up at packet pickup.
Please don't cheat this system. It's the only way we can have this fun option for this many teams!
