Important Relay Information
The focus of this event is on fun and families and with this in mind, the only category for our inaugural year will be a Mixed Family Team. Other combinations of teams may enter the Open relay, however only one category prize shall be awarded (at this stage). That prize will be awarded and that will go to the first mixed team made up of three (3) immediate family members; with at least one member being 12 years of age or under.
Each member shall run one leg of the course, tagging the next team member at the completion of their loop at the Race precinct.
Two person teams are permitted in the Open Relay. One runner can run two consecutive legs OR run the first and last leg with their team-mate running the middle loop. As stated above however; to be eligible for the Family Team award, three persons are required.
Should entries in the relays be sufficient, and other categories feature prominently, then subsequent categories may be added to the program.
There will be a marshaling area for awaiting team members adjacent to the start line where the exchanges will take place. It shall be the responsibility of the team to ensure their next runner is waiting in the marshaling area awaiting their handover.
