Event: Soldier Marathon Relay (Civilian)
Each team will consist of no less than 2 runners and no more than 4 runners. The relay teams start at the same start line as the other runners. There are three exchange points on the course: mile 7.1, mile 13.1 and mile 20.2. The first and third legs of the relay are longer at over 7 miles long while the second and fourth legs of the relay are shorter at a little over 6 miles long (basically a 10k). The lead runner on the Relay Team will wear a slap bracelet on his/her wrist. At each exchange point the runner removes the slap bracelet and hands it to the next runner. The last runner receives the slap bracelet and a race bib with a timing chip to get a finishing time. Each runner wears a Race Bib with the same Relay Team number (e.g. 5001A, lB, lC and 1D). The relay exchange points are accessible by car. Transportation for relay team members will not be provided by the Soldier Marathon. Relay exchange point #1 is on S. Lumpkin Road directly beside the National Infantry Museum at the crossing to Oxbow Meadows.
