Open Road Recreation 42.2K Team Relay
The Open Road Recreation 42.2K Team Relay event is divided into 5 separate sections, or legs. Teams are made up of a minimum of 3 members, up to a maximum of 5 members. Teams with fewer than 3 members or more than 5 members will be disqualified.
The 5 Relay legs start and end at four separate Relay Exchange Zones - four points along the course where one team member's section ends and the next team member's section begins. Of course, the very first leg starts at the starting line, and the last leg ends at the finish line.
The approximate distances of the five 42.2K Team Relay legs are:
Leg 1 – approximately 6.1 km
