Basic Rules

  • The Relay Team Captain creates a team, determines the team division (i.e. Open Mens, Master’s Mixed, etc.) 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 member, go through the same registration link, but choose the “JOIN EXISTING TEAM” category rather than the “CREATE TEAM”. Once the captain has registered and created a name for the team, it is very important to understand when team mates go to register, the entry fee will come up on the side once again. However, as soon as the team name that the captain created is chosen, the entry fee will be taken off because the captain already paid and set up the team.
  • Age Groups and Divisions: Open: 14 – 39; Master: 40 – 49; Senior: 50 – 59; Veteran 60+. Within each age group, there are 3 divisions – Men, Women, and Mixed.
  • Runners may compete in an age division younger than their age group but not vice versa. Example: a Master may be on an Open team, but an Open Division runner may not be on a Master 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 any one 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.
