A team captain registers her/his team online. When doing so, she/he indicates:
1. Team name
2. Team size (8-person, 4-person, or 2-person)
3. Team T-shirt color
4. Names of team members
5. T-shirt sizes of team members
6. Order in which team members will run
7. Estimated 5000-meters (3.1 miles) time for each runner
Once a team has registered, the team captain may edit team information online until Sep. 24, 2013 . Note: T-shirt sizes and colors cannot be changed after Aug. 9, 2013.
Standard Teams - 8 Runners
Standard teams are made up of eight runners. Each member of the team completes one leg of the relay. Legs vary in distance from 2.7 to 7.2 miles, with the average distance being 4.5 miles.
Ultra Teams - 4 Runners
Ultra teams are made up of four runners. Each member of the team completes any two legs of the relay.
Duo Teams - 2 Runners
Duo teams are made up of two runners. Each member of the team completes any four legs of the relay.
Solo - 1 Runner
Solo runners must meet strict prerequisites in order to run. Please contact the race advisor for details.
Note: Standard and Ultra teams with fewer runners will be allowed to participate. In such cases, one or more team members run more legs to make up the difference.
There are three divisions in each category: Men's, Women's, Mixed. To qualify for the Mixed division, teams must have at least half the relay legs run by women. To be in the Women's division, teams must be all women.
Dozens of volunteers are needed to help the day of the Relay. Volunteers can sign up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org before Sep. 24, 2013. They will be given assignments of approximately 4-6 hours to fulfill the day of the race. Race volunteers will meet at the church by the Rexburg Temple, then be driven in University vehicles to their assigned stations. The Relay would not be possible without the help of many volunteers. Volunteers will receive a race t-shirt.
