Timing Device:
All team results and standings are based on “net time”. All teams will wear an ankle timing device that will be passed off at each relay exchange zone.

Exchange Zones:
Relay team members must pass along the ankle timing tag at each exchange zone. This addition allows for relay teams to have a total net time with splits. Relay team members may also track their team members based on their split locations.

There is no clothing storage at the exchange zones. Please bring a bag on the bus and have a relay member responsible for bringing bags back.
