Relay Challenge

Consider a team challenge approach to conquer the marathon.

Members of a 5-person team complete an individual portion of the marathon course to a designated transition area. Legs consist of 4 Mile, 6 Mile, 4 Mile, 6 Mile, and 6.2 Mile legs.

Transition areas are located at Mile 4, Mile 10, Mile 14, and Mile 20. All five team members may, and are encouraged to, cross the finish line together.
