New registration process and management for team relay! See below for instructions on how to create, manage or join a team relay.
Create a Team Relay
Only after the Team Captain has registered and created a team online can the other team members complete their registrations. NOTE: Each member is required to complete their own registration form!
The team relay exchange points and distances have changed! Due to the location of the exchange points, the use of the buses is not critical. It is convenient and easy for relay teams to use their own transportation to meet at each exchange point as they can be accessed from the outside of the course and they are located near or around parking lots.
However, buses will be provided again in 2014. There is no need to arrange for, schedule or reserve transportation on the buses. The marathon organizers provide transportation to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th exchange points. Buses will leave at 6:30 A.M. on race day. There will be no late departure buses. NOTE: Transportation is not provided from one exchange point to the next. Buses will be parked on Main Street west of the Westin Crown Center Hotel. They will be marked for each of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th exchange points. All buses will leave the start area at 6:30 A.M.
Leg distances are currently being evaluated to ensure an enjoyable and fun race for everyone! Check back soon to see the new exchange points and distances for 2014!
The relay shuttles are optional.
NOTE: Transportation is not provided from one exchange point to the next. Buses will be parked on Main Street west of the Westin Crown Center Hotel to start the race. They will be marked for each of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th exchange points. All buses will leave the start area at 6:30 A.M.
It is encouraged for you to meet up with the final runner on your team about 2 to 3 blocks from the finish line so you are all able to cross the finish line together. DO NOT cross the finish line until all team participants are present, including your final runner.
Relay members who are not running the final leg and do not wish to cross the finish line will be instructed to enter the food line from the EXIT. In other words, go around the finish line to the end of the chute. This ONLY applies for team participants who do not wish to cross the finish line with their team.
Thanks for your cooperation!
