How it works
One runner per team may be on the track at a time and must carry the team’s timing chip that records the completed laps. Runners may pass the chip to another team member whenever they choose but must be in the transition area just past the start finish line. At the start finish line there is a timing chip scanner that will record the number of laps your team has completed.
