Relay FAQ

  • What if I do not want to wait for my teammate at the Relay Reunion Zone to cross the finish line?
    • It’s okay. You can go ahead and cross the finish line on your own, collect your medal, and go through the Secure Zone to your refreshments. You will NOT be allowed to cross the finish line again when your partner comes through so choose your moment of glory wisely!
       
  • How far away is the Relay Reunion Zone from the Relay Transition Zone?
    • After Runner #1 completes the first leg of the relay, they can walk 0.5 miles from the Relay Transition Zone to the Relay Reunion Zone to meet Runner #2 or take the complimentary shuttle from the Transition to Reunion zone. Then both runners can triumphantly run into the finish together. NOTE: This is only 0.2 miles farther than the previous walk from the Relay Reunion Zone to the Finish Line.
