2- & 4-Person Relay

Where are the three relay exhange stations and how should I get there on race day?

The relay exchange locations are listed and linked below. You may use your own vehicle to get to the relay exchange locations.

2-Person exchange #1 and is located at Trinity Lutheran Church. The address is 1401 Madison Avenue in Detroit Lakes. This location is about one mile from the Start/Finish line, so it can be walked to if needed. There is plenty of available parking in the parking lots of the church or Detroit Lakes High School across the street.

Relay runner #1 starts the race at the official starting line on Washington Ave. Relay runner #2 report to the exchange station at the Long Bridge Marina.

How do I find my relay teammate at the relay exchange stations?

All relay participants should determine an estimated time it will take to run their individual legs. Also,  you should try to remember the color of your teammate’s running attire or wear the same uniform.

Can our team meet up to run into the finish line together?

Yes, this is okay by us. We would recommend that you meet up with the last team member along Washington Avenue and finish together. We do ask, however that you be very careful not to interfere with the other individual runners who will be finishing at the same time. To that extent, we prefer relay teams be aware of anyone trying to pass them as they work to get to the finish line. No “human chains” are allowed.

Who is in charge at the relay exchange stations?

The relay stations are managed by a team of relay marshals. The marshals will be wearing bright safety vests and will have megaphones.

Will there be any water at the relay exchange stations?

The relay stations will provide bottled water for the runners finishing their legs at the exchange station.

Miscellaneous race day tips

Each relay runner will have a bib-tag, which must be worn for an official finish time. There is no bracelet or device to exchange.

There will porta-potties available at each exchange.
