SARR Great Greenway Marathon Relay

Sun February 12, 2023 San Antonio, TX 78240 US Directions



Q.  Do I have to have 5 runners on my team?

A.  No, you can have anywhere from 2 to 5 runners per team.


Q.  If I have less than 5 runners, is my team eligible for category awards?

A.  Yes, all teams are available for awards.  However, it is assumed that teams with more runners will have an advantage over teams with fewer runners.


Q.  If I have less than 5 runners does that mean some of my runners have to run more than one leg?

A.  Yes, all teams have to run the 26.2 miles but you decide which of your runners run which legs.  For example, if you have 3 runners on your team you may want to have Runner A run Legs 1 & 2, Runner B run Legs 3 & 4, and Runner C run Leg 5.  Alternatively, you could have Runner A run Legs 1 & 4, Runner B run Legs 2 & 5, and Runner C run Leg 3.  Whatever works best for your team.


Q.  Can I run the entire marathon by myself?

A.  We are looking into that option but have not opened registration for a solo marathoner.


Q.  Are dogs or strollers allowed?

A.  No, this course is too narrow to safely allow dogs or strollers.


Q.  Is this a closed course?

A.  No, the Greenway is open to the public, but it is expected that pedestrian and bike traffic in February will be subdued.  Please be courteous to others on the trail.  We will have signs indicating to others that a race is in progress.


Q.  Will there be shuttles to take runners between relay spots or to the start or finish line?

A.  No, part of the adventure of a point-to-point relay is coordinating getting your runners to the right place at the right time.


Q.  Do teams need to supply their own baton?

A.  No, teams must use the official batons because the batons will have a timing chip on them.


Q.  Are all runners timed?

A.  Individuals are not timed.  We will track when teams start and when they finish.


Q.  Will there be packet pickup the morning of the race?

A.  No.


Q.  What if one of my runners becomes injured or needs help during the race?

A.  Each bib will have a Base Camp phone number for a runner to call in case of an issue.  We encourage runners to carry their phones during the race.  (Great for selfies, too!)


Q.  Can a team use a different relay spot to handoff the baton?

A.  No, all teams must use official relay spots for baton handoffs.  There will be Relay Monitors at each Relay Spot to track teams coming through.


Q.  Is there a time cutoff?

A.  Yes, the race will close 7 hours after the start.  The course will remain open since it is open to the public, but time tracking will end after 7 hours.


Q.  What if I want to run in the race but don’t have a team?

A.  Check our event Facebook page for teams looking for runners.


Q.  What if there is bad weather?

A.  The race will take place as scheduled unless there is lightening or flooding that prevents runners from safely participating.


Q.  Will there be a post-race party?

A.  YES!  Please have your entire team meet at the finish line to cheer in your last runner and get your team medals.  There will also be food, beer, and a DJ to keep the party going while teams finish throughout the day.


Q.  Is there an age limit on participants?

A.  Yes, all runners must be 16 years of age or older.
