RELAY TIPS & REMINDERS

Here is a tips and reminders sheet about each relay. We have incorporated this so that no mistakes will be made and so that you can coach your athletes on each relay prior to the event to save time. Our goal is for the meet to be completed before 5pm.

I. Shuttle Hurdle

We have moved this to the 1st race to speed up the schedule.

This is a 4 member race. The 1st and 3rd leg will run at the 400m hurdle height and your 2nd and 4th runner will run the high hurdle height. Each girl competitor will run 100m. Each boy competitor will run a 110m. Each competitor must wait until their team member has crossed the line to begin (chest area reaches the line). Each team will run in one of two lanes. #1 and #3 runner will begin at the finish line and #2 and #4 runner will begin at start line.

II. 4x1600m Relay

We will run this immediately after the Shuttle Hurdle race.

Each team of 4 will run 1600m. We will use a fall line start. If it is not a clean start we will blow the gun and re-start. All exchanges will be in traditional 4x400 marks which are blue.

III. Warrior Medley

The 1st 2 legs (200m) will exchange in the 2nd 4x100 handoff area which is gold on our track. The second leg will handoff to the 400m runner in his or her lane using the traditional 4x400m handoff area which is blue on our track. After your 3rd runner (400m) crosses the finish line after handoff has occurred he or she may cut in as long as they do not impede another runner. The last handoff will occur on the traditional 4x400m handoff area which is blue.

IV. 4x100

Traditional 4x100m exchange zones are gold.

V. DMR (1200-400-800-1600)

1st runner (1200m) will begin on a fall line start. If it is not a clean start we will blow the gun and re-start. All exchanges will be in traditional 4x400 marks which are blue.

VI. Sprint Medley (100-100-200-400)

1st 2 exchanges will be made in traditional 4x100 exchange zones which are gold. Your 3rd runner (200m) will handoff to the 400m runner in traditional 4x400m exchanges which are blue.

VII. 4x200m Relay

Our track is marked for this race. All exchanges will be made in red handoff zones except for the last exchange zone which will be done in the yellow 4x100 exchange zone. Each team will remain in their lane the whole race. Final in yellow.

VIII. 4x800m Relay

We will use 800m start where each athlete will begin their race in their lane until they reach the 800m fall line which will be marked by cones and coaches. After your 1st runner passes the fall line they may cut in as long as they do not impede another runner. Every other handoff will be made in traditional 4x400m area which is blue.

IX. 4x400m Relay

We will use a 3-turn stagger for this event. Our track is marked for the 3 turn stagger by blue marks. The 1st runner will exchange in their blue zone which is staggered after the 1st handoff occurs the 2nd runner MUST stay in his or her lane until they reach the fall line (same as 800m fall line) this will be marked by cones and coaches. The 3rd and 4th handoff will occur in traditional 4x400m relay zones marked blue on our track.

X. All field events

We will record each of your athletes best marks and add the distance or height together to create a combined overall distance or height. Example your athlete may have the #1 mark but if his partners mark is not enough to beat the combination of another TEAM total then he or she will not win the event. It is a relay, which means that the best mark from both competitors will be added together.
