Each Relay team will complete a full marathon as a combined group 26.219 miles

Athletes on each relay team will take turns running loops around the 1.008 course. 26

The number of loops per athlete is up to coach so long as relay teams of up to 14

Each relay team will have a baton/bracelet with a chip that registers the split for each

lap of the relay and keeps count of the laps completed.

Athletes on the same relay team may run in any order and athletes are allowed to run a

loop/s and then come back later in relay to run again within that relay team.

Baton can only be handed off in the hand off zone which will be approximately 1/10th

of a mile and located before the finish line/Starting line
