Field Size

The team relay marathon field will be capped at 300 teams, with a total of 3,000 runners across all events; although the Race Director reserves the right to change the size of the relay field.

Registration

Online registration will close June 11, 2021 at 5pm or earlier if the field is filled.  In-Person registration will be available at the expo if space remains. Please register early as we have sold out in the past.

The Team Captain may register their team, prepay the combined team entry fee, and return later to complete their team information. Registering early is a great way to ensure your team gets into the Delaware Relay Marathon as this event sells out first.

NOTE: Relay team registration changes can be made online using the MANAGE RELAY TEAM tool online.

If we are forced to switch to a virtual event, all participants will have the choice to run virtually or defer their entry to 2022. All virtual runners will receive their medal and UA race shirt in the mail.

RELAY LOGISTICS

The relay consists of 4 legs.  The relay exchanges will occur in several locations along the marathon route. Most runners will be bused to and from their exchange location.  Each runner will wear their own race bib but all team members will have the same number.  A fifth bib will be issued with the timing chip affixed to pass between members at the relay exchange point in order to track the team’s time out on the race route.  Timing mats may be located just before or just after the exchange area to provide a time to each leg of the relay.

EXCHANGE TIPS

  • Know your teammate’s pace, keep track of the race time, and know when to expect him/her.
  • Wear or carry something easily identifiable by the incoming runner at the exchange.
  • Assist your fellow runners by shouting all incoming bib numbers.

How It Works

Each relay team will be issued four bibs with an identical number and ONE D-Tag and a velco strap. Runners are to pass the velcro strap to their teammates at the exchange points. Runners may carry the velcro band in their hand but DO NOT crush or bend the orange D-Tag as this may damage the timing responder.

The first runner (Leg #1) will start at 7:00am along with the half-marathon field. The other three team members will need to be at their exchange zone well before the fastest runners pass by, as area roads will close. Bus transportation will be provided to designated exchange points (DETAILS ABOVE).

When approaching the exchange point, signs will designate the location of the upcoming exchange point. Upon entering the exchange area, incoming runners should make sure their bib number is visible. A volunteer will announce the incoming runner’s bib number to the waiting runners and signs will mark the bib number ranges.

Each relay runner will pass the blue waste band to the next relay runner at the relay exchange point. Timing mats may be located after the exchange area.

BUS SHUTTLE TIMES

Runners of Legs 2, 3 and 4 will board their bus at 6:30am on the corner of N. Orange St. & W. 2nd St.  There will be street stickers from Garrett-Tubman Park directing you where to go.  PLEASE GET ON THE CORRECT BUS.  Runners of Leg #2 and Leg #4 can ride the same bus.  Leg #3 runners will use their own bus.

ALL BUSES WILL LEAVE AT 6:30AM.  Due to the shorter route and quicker pace, all runners of Legs, 2, 3 & 4 will now leave for their exchange location at 6:30AM.  PLEASE DO NOT BE LATE FOR THE BUS.  All buses will leave at the same time.
