You will be welcomed at each relay leg by a relay leg marshal who will escort you to the relay change zone. The relay change zones shall be on the right of the run course and past the drink station at each location.

Runners will be welcome to warm up at each change zone until the lead bike arrives. From there you will need to remain in the zone.

Upon completion all runners will be escorted to the bus and return to Belmont.
