All Participants Will Be Required to Provide Their Own Transportation to and from Exchange Zones.
For safety, we will not be offering shuttle service this year.
This is a 5-Person Relay. All five spots must be registered to participate.
If packet pickup day arrives and you’re still not able to field a full team, consider splitting the remaining entry amongst the registered members, transferring to another event if spots remain, or volunteering to support the other runners.
A team of five runners will complete the entire marathon distance. Each runner will run one leg of varying distance handing off a runners belt containing your scoring chip to the next team member at each relay exchange zone.
NOTE: All five spots on your team must be registered prior to packet pickup in order to receive any team BIBs. BIBs are required to run the race. If you’re not able to fill all of your team spots or someone drops out last minute, consider shifting the legs to have anyone run multiple consecutive legs. Also consider asking someone already registered for the half or full marathon to register for the relay and run the first or second leg for your team (must be first or second leg in this instance). If Expo day arrives and you’re still not able to field a full team, consider splitting the remaining entry amongst the registered members, or transferring to another event if spots remain. Online transfer period ends March 31st.
The course is the same as the marathon course. Exchange zones will be marked with flags and cones.
The Glass City 5-Person Marathon Relay course will begin on Secor Rd on the West side of the University of Toledo. It will circle campus before heading West into beautiful Ottawa Hills. Heading north into the quiet neighborhoods of Old Orchard and Ottawa Hills, the course leads you to the area’s finest Metroparks system utilizing the University Parks bike Trail. A tour through Sylvania leads you back to Wildwood Metropark and down the bike trail to a short tour of the UT campus concluding with the finish inside the Glass Bowl.
