The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon Team Relay Challenge offers runners another way to run the marathon – with friends, family or co-workers. Teams are encouraged to 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.

 

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 names, addresses, phone numbers, birth dates, shirt sizes, and e-mail addresses. 

 

The race confirmation will be emailed to the primary contact. Only one person needs to pick up your Relay race packet on Friday, May 16th between 3 pm and 7 pm or Saturday, May 17th between 10 am and 7 pm at the Lambeau Field Club Level.  The Prevea Health & Fitness Expo will be held in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

 

Team Relay Challenge Rules:

 

  1. Relay teams can have from 2-5 runners per team. Team members are not required to work for the same organization or for the organization they represent.
  2. Four “Relay Hand-Off Sites” will be designated on the course. Although teams are encouraged to use these hand-off sites, they are not required to do so and may break up the 26.2-mile course as they please. 
  3. Each relay spot will be clearly marked with a tall, red “RELAY EXCHANGE” teardrop-shaped flag.  Participants should exchange in the general vicinity of the flag.
  4. Each team will be supplied one hand off band to serve as the “baton.”   This red, reflective, snap band 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Please do not attempt to follow your team member as they navigate the course.  This is strictly prohibited. 
  7. The race organizers reserve the right to reject team names that might be deemed offensive to other participants and spectators.
  8. 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.

 

MORNING PARKING

 

Prior to the race, teams should PARK IN THE  K-MART OR ADJACENT PARKING LOT off of Lombardi Avenue, just west of the stadium. Parking anywhere else will jeopardize your ability to quickly and easily head to the first relay exchange after the start of the race.  These lots have easy access to Hwy. 41, nearby hand-off zones, and access to sites on the east side of the Fox River.
