The 2020 course format, means that participants in the 2 x 25km relay will complete one lap of the course each. The relay exchange point will be located at the top of the finish chute, within Queen Elizabeth Park, Coolangatta. Due to the nature of the course, runner 1 will run 500m more than runner 2.
Second Runner Start Process
You will be able to track the progress of your relay runner completing the first leg via the athlete tracker app. Please head to the relay exchange point and provide your name to the marshal as you await your relay partner to complete their leg of the relay. When your team member passes the exchange, and enters the finish chute you will be permitted to start your leg. Please ensure the volunteer has scanned your race bib prior to commencing your leg.
Mass restart for 25km relay
Relay runners doing the second lap will leave when their outbound partner arrives at relay exchange point. However there will be a mass start at the 3hr mark (approx 0800 hrs) for the runners completing the second lap whose outbound partner has not yet arrived by that time. Race times will be adjusted accordingly.
Athletes who drop out of the race must advise an official or an aid station captain of their withdrawal.
