Relay consists of TWO runners. The first runner will begin at the start line at Bayview Elementary School, while the second runner will walk/drive to Faith Lutheran Church, 800 Waconia Pkwy N, Waconia and walk to the tag zone (see map). Once the first runner reaches the “tag zone”, an exchange of race number belt will make the “tag” official. The second runner will complete the second half of the 3.1 distance while the first runner can either drive back to the finish line at Bayview Elementary or walk.
If runners are walking back to the finish line, runners should use the left side of the road or use the path to walk back. Please do not get in the way of the runners trying to finish the race.
If runners are driving back to the finish line, please head west on Waconia Parkway away from the race route. There will be a lot of runners still running towards Bayview Elementary and trying to keep as many cars off the race route as possible.
