Fleet Feet Sports Marathon Relay
Get Your Team Together
Marathon Relay teams will consist of 2 to 4 runners. The field is limited to 100 teams. Runners will be chip-timed. Relay legs can be any length and we will be using a "tag team format" where you can switch runners as often as you would like. Teams must complete approximately 95.5 laps, which is equivalent to a full 26.2 mile marathon. All registrants will receive a long-sleeve performance shirt and a goodie bag.
Aid Stations and Storage
There will be a large refreshment station at one end of the track. Runners can keep water bottles in a designated area near the station. Volunteers will be on hand to fill runners' bottles with water and sports drinks upon request. Runners should bring their own bottles as cups will not be allowed or provided due to spillage concerns.
There will be two portable restrooms near the running track. Runners are asked not to use the restrooms in the Pettit Center lobby during the race.
The top three Male, Female and Mixed teams will be given awards.
The race will be chip-timed. The scorer will use this to get lap counts for runners. There may be a scoreboard to display lap counts. Runners can also request a lap count when they go past the scorer's table on the front stretch, and a volunteer will call of their count the next time around. Several running watches such as Garmin Forerunners have lap tracking capabilities and runners are free to use those to keep track of laps.
Registration for the marathon relay opens in early August. The registration fee is $120 per team until October 31 and $130 after that and is non-refundable. We do allow you to switch runners after you have registered. To do this, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Replacing Team Members
If a team member needs to be replaced prior to race-day, you can email us at email@example.com with the name and shirt size of the new runner and the name of the runner he/she will be replacing. It is not mandatory that you do this; you can just show up on race-day with your new team member(s), however, they may not get the shirt size they want.
