Half Marathon Relay: Twice the fun, but half the training!
|Race Date:||Saturday, April 20, 2013|
|Race Start:||8:30 am|
|Limited Spots:||300 Teams|
Closes April 15th
If you’re not quite ready to tackle 13.1 miles, then grab a friend, relative or a complete stranger and take on the Half Marathon route together. Each of you will take in about 6.5 miles….the hardest part will be deciding who gets to see which part of this wonderful course. One of you will get the awesome Starting Line and one of you will get the awesome Finish Line. Either way, you both win. Divisions in the Relay include Men, Women and Mixed.
- The first runner will start at 8:30am on University Avenue with the entire field.
- The second runner will be stationed just south of the 6-mile mark on the Beaver Island Trail by the boat launch
- The 2nd runner of the relay team should head to the Fieldhouse after the race has started.
- We will meet at the south end of the Fieldhouse at 8:45 and start walking runners down to the relay exchange zone when we have groups that are ready.
Bag Drop - (Saturday Only) – The St. Cloud Tech High School Track Team will also provide a bag drop on Saturday morning. Please indicate if you are a relay team member. We will bring the first leg of the relay runner’s items out to the relay point along with bottles of water for them to have as they finish the first part of the course.
Relay Packet Pickup – There will be two (2) bibs per team, both with the same number. Each bib has a timing chip attached to it. Do not come within 30’ of the appropriate timing mat if that is not your “leg” of the relay. Bibs will be in alpha order by the Team Captains name. Both bibs should be picked up at the same time by Team Captain.
