Half Marathon Relay
Grab a friend and split the half marathon distance on Labor Day. The exchange zone for the relay is on the corner of Chapel St. and Church St. (southeast corner of the New Haven Green). First leg runs 6.9 miles and the second leg runs 6.2 miles (10K). If you would like to run the relay and are looking for a relay partner, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How the relay works:
Each relay runner is assigned a bib. Each team is assigned one number. Leg 1 and Leg 2 runners receive two bibs with timing chips. Leg 1 will be required to remove their bib after completing their leg to avoid any discrepancies with timing.
The exchange zone takes place on the corner Chapel St. and Church St. Signage on the New Haven Green will direct you to the exchange zone. Leg 2 meets no later than 8:45 a.m. The first runner will be corralled as they approach the exchange zone where they will then high five Leg 2 in the exchange zone. A race volunteer will ask Leg 1 to remove the bib number after the exchange. Further exchange zone instructions upon arrival.
**If you and your partner plan to switch your legs you must let a race official know race morning at the finish area. Your team risks not being timed if the switch is not made officially.**
