About:
Shuttle busses are provided to and from the relay exchange zones. Shuttle pick up and drop off is at the corner of 1st Street SE and 1st Avenue SE which is one block West of the Mayo Civic Center. After each runner finishes their leg of the race, they can hop on a shuttle back to the finish line area. There are no shuttles between the different exchange zones.

The first leg of the relay will need to take the shuttle bus out to the start line, it takes off from the same location as the other shuttles but the start line service is only available from 5:20am until 6:20am.

Headphones are allowed while you run, we just ask that you pause your music or take one headphone off as you approach volunteers or police officers to make so you can hear them. They may have special instructions or you may be approching a point where the different distances go their seperate ways.

Participants 21 years of age and over: Your registration comes with a free finish line beer! Be sure to stop in at the Team R.E.D. booth during the expo to pick up your beer wrist band.

Bag Drop:

There is not a bag drop for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th leg relay runners. Any warm up items that are brought with you to your exchange zone should be handed off to your teammate who just finished their leg before they board the return shuttle so they can bring your items with them back to the finish area and have them waiting for you. 

This section only applies to the runner of the first leg of your relay team:
Bag drop off area is located in the Byron Intermediate School parking lot near the start line (look for the "Bag Drop" sign). We will bring the bags down to the finish line chute, for you to pick up conveniently after you finish your race. We are not responsable for any valuables that are left in the bags during transport. The first leg relay runner can pick up their dropped bag in the finish line chute once upon their return from the exchange zone.

Important message about safety and security:
You MUST use the bag drop bag provided to you at packet pick up, no other bags will be accepted! The bag drop is heavily monitored and all bag drop bags are subject to search.

All unnattended bags left anywhere on the grounds will be confiscated.
