Family Relay:

The criteria (feel free to enter another Relay if you can’t tick all the boxes):

  • Immediate family members (step-family included)
  • At least one person 12 years of age or under
  • Three runner minimum**, each participant running one 4km leg each

Other Relays (main prize – bragging rights for a year):

This year teams can be entered in any of our other relay options; OPEN, HIGH SCHOOL, PRIMARY SCHOOL or CORPORATE!

  • A mix of gender/gender neutral members must be included*
  • Three runner minimum, each running one 4km leg each

*Exemptions for single sex families and schools

** Two person teams permissible but ineligible for prizes

Each member shall run one leg of the course, tagging the next team member at the completion of their loop at the Race precinct. Two member teams; you can choose one runner to run two legs. They can run these consecutively or run the first and last leg.

Exemptions can be made for single sex families and schools.

There will be one marshalling area for awaiting team members; located adjacent to the roadside near the start/finish – there will be a flag, a marshal but no defined waiting area (for social distancing purposes).

All runners will run the same route; the out and back section alongside the picturesque Emerald Lakes (turning at the same spot as the 8k event). This way you can have your own internal competition against your teammates and fellow relay runners!

It shall be the responsibility of the team to ensure their next runner is waiting near the marshaling area awaiting their handover.
