START AREA

At each start area all relay runners shall move off with a Run Leg Coordinator and several parents who will run the leg with the kids and safety marshals.
Once you arrive at the run leg the Coordinator 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.

IMPORTANT: A warm up clothing tub will be provided at each Start Area. Runners may place their gear in the tub and it will brought back onto the bus then transported to the finish baggage collection area.

TRAVEL FROM YOUR FINISH AREA

The relay marshal at each change zone shall receive the incoming runner and ensure that a proper change takes place. Essentially we require a hand touch in the zone between incoming and outgoing runners. From there all finishing runners shall remain in the zone until everyone in the relay leg has finished.

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

IMPORTANT: We require all runners to return to the Belmont finish line. From there you can watch your team finish, collect you medal and be returned to your waiting friends and family.

Medals and return of gear
All relay runners are eligible to receive a unique Fernleigh 15 finishers medal. These are to be collected at the finish.
Similarly, warm up gear left at your start area shall be transported to the Belmont finish line.

There is lots to do at the finish line for waiting family and friends. See below.
