Did somebody say…. team?
That’s right – The Blue Nose Marathon is all about inclusivity, and the Killam Marathon Team Relay provides a unique opportunity to participate in race weekend in an entirely new and exciting way… as part of a team!
The Marathon Team Relay is a fun event that welcomes corporate groups, charity fundraisers, families and groups of friends to experience the exciting full Marathon course. In teams of 4-8, Relay participants will each run a portion of the Marathon course, running amongst participants from the Marathon, Half Marathon and 10 KM participants. You may choose to let the final runner cross the finish line alone, or you may all run the last part of the route and cross the finish line together as a team.
Approximate distances are as follows:
Leg One: 6.4KM
Leg Two: 6.1KM
Leg Three: 3.8KM
Leg Four: 6.3KM
Leg Five: 5.2KM
Leg Six: 6.1KM
Leg Seven: 3.8KM
Leg Eight: 5.2KM
You will wear a timing chip around your waist that will be passed between team members in designated exchange zones.
*** Please note, all eight legs must be completed. If your team has less than 8 people, some members will have to complete multiple legs. If you have any questions regarding the Marathon Team Relay, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
