+ HOW IT WORKS

HOW DOES THE
RELAY WORK?

  • Relay Teams can consist of 2 – 12 members in male, female, and co-ed categories. Relay teams can split up the amount of legs each person runs depending on the number of racers on their team. Relay teams can also have multiple runners run the same leg.
  • At each transition, runners are to pass their racebelt to their teammates at the exchange point. Transitions can only take place at these designated areas.
  • Upon entering the exchange area, incoming runners should make sure their bib number is visible. A volunteer will announce the incoming runner’s bib number to the waiting runners

  • + Military Discount

    Run4Troops would like to extend its appreciation to ACTIVE duty military members of all branches of the U.S. military by offering a 50% discount to relay teams with ALL members currently serving our country.

    Due to the complexity of discounting only one relay participant as a part of an entire team, we are only offering the discount to teams that are comprised entirely of active duty military members.

    Please contact us directly to receive a discount.

  • + Relay Wave Assignments

    Relay Teams have been separated into waves starting at different times to help alleviate some of the traffic congestion at Transition Areas.

  • + Transition Maps & Directions

    It is recommended that Relay Teams carpool to each Transition Area as a team to drop off each leg and pick up the finishing leg. Parking is extremely limited at each Transition Area due to the remoteness of the trail and it is advised to allow extra time between racer transitions to travel to and from each Transition Area.

    Directional Signage will be posted along the route to navigate between each Transition Areas. Step-by-step directions will also be given at Packet Pickup to help teams navigate their way along the course.

    If teams ride from one transition to the next, navigation will be simple due to the clear road markings. However, if team members choose to ride separately to their transition from another location (different than preceding transition point), they must be aware of road closings.
