Half Marathon Relay

Sunday, May 21, 2017

The Cellcom Green Bay Half Marathon Team Relay Challenge offers runners another way to run the half marathon – with a friend, family member or co-worker. Teams may also seek sponsorship from local corporations, social clubs, restaurants, etc. and use that organization’s name as their team name.

Prizes: Each member of the top three relay teams (male, female, mixed) will be awarded at 10:30 on the Van’s Lumber and Custom Home Builders Stage.

Registration: Team Relay registrations may be filled out by one member of the team. Be sure to have all the information for the other runners in your group so you can register together. You will need name, address, phone number, birth date, shirt size, and e-mail address.

The race confirmation will be emailed to the primary contact. Only one person needs to pick up your Relay race packet at the Prevea Health & Fitness Expo on the Lambeau Field Club Level on event weekend.  The Prevea Health & Fitness Expo will be held in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

Team Relay Challenge Rules

  • Relay teams can have 2 runners per team. Team members are not required to work for the same organization or for the organization they represent.
  • The “Relay Hand-Off Site” will be designated on the course. Although teams are encouraged to use the hand-off site, they are not required to do so and may break up the 13.1-mile course as they please. 
  • The relay exchange spot will be clearly marked with a tall, red “RELAY EXCHANGE” teardrop-shaped flag.  Participants should exchange in the general vicinity of the flag.
  • Each team will be supplied one race belt with timing bib to serve as the “baton.”   This race belt with timing bib is easy to remove and transfer between runners.  It also serves to show our lead vehicles that you are a preferred start team runner, rather than a preferred start solo runner in the lead pack.
  • No parking is allowed on the actual race course.  Please park on side streets or adjacent parking lots. Be aware of runner and course direction to ensure that your team vehicle egress is not hindered.
  • Please do not attempt to follow your team member as they navigate the course.  This is strictly prohibited.
  • The race organizers reserve the right to reject team names that might be deemed offensive to other participants and spectators.
  • Failure to follow these rules may result in disqualification.

Shuttles

There will be no shuttles provided to the relay teams.  Teams must provide their own vehicles to move between the exchange locations.  The relay exchange locations offer ample parking.  In addition, each team will receive detailed driving instructions to get them from point to point in their packet with their materials on race weekend.
