EXCHANGE DROP OFF LOCATIONS
One vehicle can be used for dropping off and picking up relay team members. The easiest way to do it is to drop off Runner 1 at the Starting Line and then drive the rest of the team to the first exchange at Olin Park where runners 2 & 3 will be waiting. Runner 2 will take the slap bracelet and run to Olbrich Park where Runners 1 & 3 will be waiting. Runner 3 will take the slap bracelet and run to the Finish Line where the team will meet up 1/2 block before the finish.
