NO HILLS!! FLAT, BEAUTIFUL & the Last Boston Qualifying Course of the year!
3rd Annual Boundary Bay Marathon
How does the Boundary Bay Marathon & Marathon Relay work?
There are 4 Boundary Bay Marathon Legs
Marathon Relay 4 Legs
This means your Boundary Bay Marathon Relay team will have 4 people and at each one of these "Leg/Water Stations" we will have a water station for the marathoners, half marathoners and for your relay team members. We ask that your team members help with the water stations as they wait for their team members to arrive and please help after your leg to cheer on the other relay members and marathoners while helping with the water station. I know this might seem like a lot to ask but in order for us to make this relay and marathon work we need you to be a part of the show!
You will have to pass your team relay timing tag from one team member to another as the official leg switch is happening. You will only receive a team relay time if you have your timing tag and if you lose your timing tag of course you won't get a time! If you are the first leg or the last leg member you have to make sure your timing tag is attached to your shoe. The best way to make this fast switch is to use twist ties and attached to your shoe laces. If you have a stop watch and would like to time your leg please do so and email me your team's leg splits with names and I'll add them to the results.
We will have a sweep bike rider with the last Marathon runner that will let you know it is safe to leave your leg station. Please make sure you bring a warm change of clothes so you can change after your leg and of course have your warm clothes on as you wait for your team to reach your leg station. Your team is responsible for arranging to get to the leg stations and to get back to the start/finish line after the course is cleared.
This is our first time setting up a team relay and will do our best to get better each time. This is a suggestion and you can set this up however you feel but one team member can drop of team member #2, #3 & #4 with gear in a tupperware container for the corresponding member finishing at that location. After you are done your leg and the sweep comes by you can start driving back from the Mud Bay Parking lot and meet up with your team at the next leg/water station and cheer on the crowd and when the sweep bike comes you will move to the next stop. *Remember it is very very important to have WARM ALL WEATHER outfits. This is an ocean side trail and if the weather is wet & cold we want to be warm!
