Relay teams are comprised of four members, running or walking approximately six miles each, to complete a full 26.2 marathon. The first team member will run approximately 6.8 miles, second member 6.2 miles, third member 7.5 miles and the final team member will run 5.7 miles. The race offers an opportunity for family, friends, co-workers and organizations to join together to compete as one. Marathon Relay divisions include: women, men, co-ed corporate and co-ed family & friends and the Battle of the Badges competition between area police and firefighters.
The marathon relay race is also a great way for newcomers to endurance competition to get started, while enjoying the team aspect. Participants who have completed their relay leg of the course, all join the final team member near the finish line so they can cross the line together. The 2016 Marathon Relay has been capped at 650 teams (2,600 individuals) and typically reaches capacity before race day, so we encourage teams to register early.
