Each team member will wear an individual timing-tag, which will be fastened to his/her shoe. Once a relay member has crossed the timing mat and finished his/her leg of the race, he/she should remove the timing tag from his/her shoe to avoid any potential timing issues while passing near a timing mat at the relay exchange or near the finish line.
Each team’s total elapsed time will be used to determine the winners. In the event of a tie for first place, the time of the runner of the first leg of the relay will determine the winner. Awards will be given to the top three overall Male, Female and Mixed teams.
All results released on race day are unofficial until verified. Upon completion of competition, each Relay Exchange Coordinator will return the results to the overall timing/scoring service. All results will be compiled and reviewed. Official results will be posted online.
Any protests of irregularity or fouls taking place during the competition must be made in writing and received by 5:00 PM Monday, May 7, 2018. We recommend that you fax any protest to the Marathon Office at 412-202-3494 or email our office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Decisions of the race director are final.
