Marathon Team Relay

Relay participants run the marathon route which is divided into 8 legs. You need a minimum of two team members and a maximum of eight. A timing chip, attached to a belt serves as the team’s baton and is passed between team members in the designated exchange zones.


All eight legs must be completed. The team determines who runs which leg. If you have less than eight members, one or more members will need to run multiple legs. Each team requires a team name and a team captain, who will help you coordinate the legs.
