IMPORTANT TURKEY LEG RELAY INFORMATION
The turkey leg relay teams will consist of two team members. Each team member will receive a bib number and a timing tag. The bib number will be the same for both members of the team.
For example, you are team # 4001, both team members will receive a 4001 bib number. Each bib number will come with a Bib Tag timing tag. Each team member is to affix their bib number to the FRONT of their shirt. Both tags will be coded to the same team and the same number. Please leave the timing tag affixed to your bib, you only have to tag your teammate at the relay junction. The relay hand off will be at the 2 mile mark on the course. One team member will start at the starting line along with the entire field of 4 mile participants and other relay teams, the second leg relay participant will be waiting at the 2 mile junction.
For all relay members doing the second leg of the relay, you must either walk or run to the 2 mile point for the Turkey Leg hand off. We recommend starting to walk/jog to the 2 mile point at least 15 minutes before 9am to ensure you arrive on time. Due to the change in course this year, the start and 2 mile hand off are not as close as they once were, so making your way to the 2 mile split on your own is critical. Please view the course map for the location of the 2 mile junction. You will notice the location of the junction on race day.
The best way to get to the 2 mile junction is by leaving the Visitors Center walking North on Pine Lake Drive towards the race start. Follow the road past the race start towards the Amphitheater The Relay location will be in the field visible from the 3 way stop at the Amphitheater. This is where you will meet your relay team member.
