Boo to Brew 4-Person Relay Information
October 29, 2016
Relay Team Requirements
Your team must be made of 4 team members, with at least 1 team member being a female. We do allow 3-person teams with one team member running 2 legs. New this year: We will allow 2-person teams with the understanding these teams are not eligible for team awards. Individuals running the half marathon may run on a team but must run the first leg, and MUST register as an individual. Team members will pass a team “anklet” from one team member to the next. The anklet contains the team timing tag and should be worn on the ankle for best results. Please return the timing anklet to race officials when you finish.
Relay Team Captains
If registering on-line, team captains will first create your team while registering themselves. We encourage creative names!! Once your team has been created, the team captain should inform other team members of the team name which they can select when registering. If registering off-line, all team members should register using the same team name, and send all forms in together.
Individuals Running on a Relay Team:
If you are an individual who is running the entire half marathon, you may run the first leg of a relay. You will hand off to the 2nd leg and keep going. You MUST register as an individual half marathon runner, not as a relay team member, but you will be able to add your team name during the registration process.
Relay Team Awards
- Top 5 teams will receive trophies for each team member.
- Teams 6-10 will receive one team trophy.
- All relay team members will receive a finisher’s medal!
Relay Team Legs/Relay Meeting/Shuttle Buses
Relay legs are (mileages are estimates):
- Start to Mile 3.2. Exchange zone Eastman Employee Center.
- Mile 3.2 to Mile 6.3. Exchange zone near Haunted Half start/finish line.
- Mile 6.3 to Mile 10. Exchange zone Eastman Employee Center
- Mile 10 to Finish (Mile 13.1)
As you can see, the above mileages for the exchange zones are estimates. About 1:15 pm, the 2nd and 4th leg relay team members should start boarding the shuttle buses to the relay exchange points. The 1st and 3rd leg runners will stay at the start/finish area. The shuttle buses will run constantly between the start/finish and the exchange area, taking runners out to the exchange, and returning runners back to the start/finish area after they finish their leg.
