RELAY DETAILS: Older, or more experienced runners will be asked to pull their team through the longer (blue, ~.65 miles) leg of the course. (see map below) Once finished, younger, or less experienced, runners will continue the chain and finish the one mile circuit. Red course runners (~.35 miles) will pick up a “counter” during their leg of the relay that they will place in their team’s counting bin at the start/finish line. At the end of the relay, counters will be tallied to determine how many miles were run by each team over the course of the event. While the relay is taking place, Wings of America Running & Fitness Camp facilitators will lead field and ball games for those participants not actively participating in the relay. UP TO 7 RUNNERS FROM EACH OF THE THREE TEAMS WILL BE ALLOWED ON THE COURSE AT ONE TIME .
