Marathon Relay – EU for sport, 12km - 9km - 12km - 9km
What is Marathon Relay? Marathon Relay is a race in which 4 competitors participate and they have to complete the 42,195 km race altogether. The running takes place in 4 legs: the first leg is 12km, the second 9km, the third 12km, the fourth is 9km. All participants in the relay receive a start number (without a chip), while one start number with a chip is assigned to the whole team. The start number with a chip shall be worn by the first competitor from the relay and then he/she hands it to the next competitor. The relay legs are as follows:
- Leg 1 is located on Jane Sandanski Blvd., opposite Tri Biseri, see the map. Here, the start number ending in 2 substitutes start number ending in 2.
- Leg 2 is located on Ilinden Blvd., after the gas station of Makpetrol, see the map. Here, the start number ending in 3 substitutes the start number ending in 2
- Leg 3 is located on Jane Sandanski Blvd, opposite Tri Biseri, see the map. Here, the start number ending in 4 substitutes the start number ending in 3
Rules for relay leg changes
At the leg change points, 1,5 m distance boxes will be marked on the pavement. The relay numbers will be marked in each box for example, 501, 502, 503, ....). Each runner stops in the box where his/her start number is stated and waits for his team runner to appear. When the team runner appears, he/she gets down on the track, takes the relay number and continues running. Runners awaiting leg changes must wear a face mask at all times. Moreover, runners finishing the race must immediately put on a face mask. There will be referees at the leg changes points to take care of regularity. If the rules are violated or the rules are not fully observed, the team will be disqualified.
Relay runners can be of the same gender or may be mixed (male/female). The ranking of the relay teams will be divided into men's, women's and mixed teams.
Each member of the relay team gets a medal, i.e. the last one to finish gets all 4 medals for the team.
