8 Person Relay Registration
The Discover Bank eight person relay marathon works exactly like the four person relay marathon. Teams consist of eight members, with each member running one equal distance loop of 3.275 miles. Runners may complete two non-consecutive legs of the relay marathon and still allow their team to remain eligible for awards. Gender and age requirements for the teams will be enforced by the race organizers. All loops start and finish at the Relay Start / Finish in Tubman Park.
There are two ways to register for this event. You may print and mail our PDF Entry Form (coming soon) or you may register for your team online here.
Eight person relay marathon registrations are $320. If the relay marathon field is not yet filled, relay registrations postmarked after March 31, 2015 will be accepted at $400.
When registering by mail, all eight registration forms must be received together with the combined team entry fee. Please indicate on the forms in which running position the team member will be competing: (Runner #1, Runner #2, Runner #3, Runner #4; Runner #5; Runner #6; Runner #7; Runner #8).
Corporate eight person relay marathon registrations are $500, regardless of when received. Only Corporate Teams may include their business name, organization’s name, or a product name in their team name. Corporate teams receive race program recognition and compete for a special corporate award which is awarded to the business or organization; in addition to the individual awards which will provided to the winning corporate team members.
NOTE: Because of the numerous relay team registration changes and additions that are received after the field closes each year, late additions and replacements to relay teams that need to be made after April 15, 2015 may be subject to a $25 processing fee.
