Each team will consist of anywhere from 1 to 10 members who will each take turns running various lengths in order to complete the 49.3 mile journey. Each team is allowed as many support vehicles as needed. The first vehicle will drop off the first runner, provide support and direction to the runner then drive ahead to the first exchange point. Then they will drop off the second runner and pick up the first runner. They will repeat this pattern until they hand off to the second vehicle. This leapfrogging pattern will continue all the way to the finish line.

Rule #1 - the team’s slap bracelet must be transported by running and/or by walking.
