Do you want to participate in The Rockin' Chocolate Marathon but prefer a shorter distance? Recruit your team of three runners and make it a team effort. It's fun and easy! We shuttle you to your transition area and then back to the finish area once you are done running. There will be a Team Meet-Up Area 1 block before the Finish Line for those wishing to cross the Finish Line as a team. Every team member will receive an official (tech) race shirt, pre-race snacks, post-race snacks, a goodie bag full of great stuff, a free beer or soda and an awesome finisher medal.
1st Leg - From Winnequah Park To Olin Park - 4.3 Miles
2nd Leg - From Olin Park To Olbrich Park - 5 Miles
Last Leg - From Olbrich Park To Winnequah Park - 3.8 Miles
Each team will receive a packet with a bib for each team member. All team members will have the same number so you can identify each other. One bib will have a timing chip attached, this bib must be worn by the person running the last leg of the relay. The first runner will start with a slap bracelet on his/her wrist, this is your "baton". The baton must be exchanged at each relay point and must be worn by the last runner as they cross the finish line.
