ADDITIONAL RELAY INFORMATION:
Relay Sprint triathlon is a WONDERFUL way to experience a triathlon if you are not ready to run the whole thing, if you are not capable of competing in a specific leg, or if you just want an opportunity to share something unique with friends or family. A Sprint triathlon relay can be done with 2 or 3 people. The team can consist of all male participants, all female or mixed. Each person does 1 or 2 legs of the race. The timing chip will have a Velcro strap on it and is handed off from one athlete to the next in transition.
