*For the team relay division at The Akron Marathon in September, where no prize money is involved, participants can only win one award. Overall placements are weighted more heavily than Master’s placements, therefore if you are a team of Master’s Runners who place in the top three overall, you will be awarded as such. All awards will be mailed post-race.
RUNNING 2 RELAY LEGS or MULTIPLE EVENTS
A member of your Relay Team can run 2-consecutive relay legs; the team must be paid in full. The runner running two legs must register & pay for both legs.
The 1st leg runner can also run the marathon or half marathon; that team member must register & pay for both events. As a reminder, this can only happen if that runner runs the 1st leg. On race day, wear both bibs & cross over the 1st exchange zone; no need to remove bibs or timing devices then continue on the half/marathon course. Make sure you pick up both packets at the Expo.
