RELAY TEAM INFORMATION
Relays can be 2-person (one person does 2 legs, and one person does 1 leg) or 3-person teams (each person does 1 leg of the event). Teams can consist of any mix of genders.
EACH Relay member MUST pick up his/her own packet.
EACH Member MUST have their photo ID and USAT card (if applicable) to pick up their packet.
If a member is a minor (17 or under), then a parent/guardian must show an ID to get their packet.
If a member turns 18 by the end of the year they are considered an Adult per USAT, thus they must pick up their own packet.
If you need to replace a relay member you can e-mail us using the Contact Us button at the top of the page with the changes.
If it is the week of the event and you need to make a change to a relay member then you can make this change at packet pick up.
At packet pick up you will be given a sheet of paper that explains how the relays will work (chip hand off, tagging spot, etc.).
If you are an individual that wishes to switch to a relay team, then you can e-mail us, using the Contact Us button at the top of the page, the following information: Team Name, Team Member Names, Team Member Shirt sizes. You will need to pay the difference to convert to a relay, which you can pay at packet pick up (cash or check only).
