Welcome Reception

Individuals will check-in by team number, so please have your team number listed below handy when you arrive. You do not have to be with your team to check-in. All participants must come to one of the welcome reception events to sign a waiver and show ID. If a team member is unable to attend either event, they can complete the registration process on Saturday morning at the starting line. Please allow extra time (45 minutes before your start) to check in on Saturday morning.

Safety Video & Required Gear

All team members must watch our 2019 Safety Video prior to the relay.

Required Visibility Gear - All teams must have at least two reflective vests,
two headlamps, and two blinking LED taillights. These items will have to be
shown to the safety volunteers at the starting line check-in for a team to start
the relay. Shirts with reflective gear will not qualify as a reflective vest. Here
are links to acceptable items:
Safety Vest | Headlamp | Blinking LED Light
*These links are just recommended items. You do not have to have these specific items. Safety vests that are reflective and have a rear blinking light will meet both the vest and rear LED requirement.

Runner Directions

Unlike your typical road race, team relay courses are open to vehicles. You will share the road and greenways with cyclists, pedestrians, and most importantly, vehicles. We have worked hard to keep our runners on less-traveled roads, but everyone should be prepared to run safely, with traffic in mind. Treat your runs on the V2V course as you would if you went out your front door for a run on the road. All runners should follow the rules of the road and normal pedestrian traffic laws while they are running. Unless otherwise noted, runners should run against oncoming traffic.

All teams and individuals are ultimately responsible for staying on course. The
route will be marked with green directional signs, but it is important to remember that it is your responsibility to stay on course. For that reason, take plenty of time before the event to study your individual legs. Detailed leg maps and directions are available in the Guidebook. Some legs are simple, but others have a number of turns. If you get lost easily or are concerned about where to go, we recommend you print, laminate, and carry these directions with you on the course. You can also download the maps to your phone to carry with you and use RaceJoy - our runner tracking app.


Driving Directions

We strongly suggest that teams drive the course in advance. If driving the course in advance is not possible, we recommend that drivers for each leg study the driving directions in the Guidebook and know the route before taking the wheel on race day.

The driver should know each route, ensure the team’s safety, and help serve as a protector of all runners on the course. For the safety of runners and for optimal traffic flow, drivers should be aware of the designated driving path and follow that path despite what GPS directions may suggest. Vehicles should move quickly from one transition area to the next; therefore, there is not much time for getting lost. There is nothing more frustrating for a runner than finishing his/her leg and having to wait on the team vehicle to arrive!
