and not the Bruny Island main road. This will reduce traffic congestion for the
runners who are using the main road creating safer running conditions for all
competitors. This will only add 5 minutes to your travelling time. Signs will
direct vehicles to the start using this alternative route.
TEAM GUIDE LINES:
or serious relay teams are welcome to participate. Each relay leg is
approximately 2 kilometres with a roadside marker indicating changeovers.
Runners may run in any order, one running per team leg. Runners may run back to
back legs if the team chooses or multiples of 2km legs. When a changeover takes
place, it must take place on the right hand side of the road, and at designated
areas indicated with the changeover markers. (This is an important race
requirement for safety reasons).
