FREEDOM is the key word here. You can plan the legs as you wish.
One runner might only run one relay leg during the entire race. But one runner could also run two, three or four legs in a row if he or she feel like it. There is no minimum or maximum number of relay legs to do per runner.
Put all your Mates in a van (or in two cars if you don’t have a van) and get them to run over 200 km around the biggest lake in Switzerland and France! There are 29 relay legs in all, from 3 to 13km in length, which makes around 25 km per Mate with varying levels of difficulty according to how your team is organised.
Only one runner at a time is allowed on the course, while the other Mates can rest, cheer on their runner or complete the challenges!
While the runner is on the course, the van has to drive to the next relay point to wait for him or her. The Mates only have telephone contact with the runner to encourage or help if he or she goes the wrong way. They are not allowed to follow the runner on the course.
No, no roads will be closed for the race. You will run on tracks, paths and pavements with a minimum number of roads to cross. Where there are roads to cross this will mainly be on pedestrian crossings. On the few occasions where this is not the case, there will be marshals present (from the organising team) to help you cross.
YES Absolutely! Since it’s up to each team to decide how to run the race you can run just one leg of 3km or you can run a lot more if you are up to it. If you spread the legs in a roughly equal way between each runner, you will each run a half-marathon but over 24 hours and with a nice long rest in between each section!
As the team captain, you can log back into your “runner registration” and modify the predicted average pace of your team. Watch out for the cutoff date as the race approaches - no further changes will be possible after this.
The organisers will be in regular contact with you to assist if your runner gets lost or is in trouble. But it is the Mates who are responsible for ensuring that their runner does not stray from the course! All the course information will be shown in the detailed guide.
No dedicated space will be provided by the organization. We encourage you to organize your vehicle so that your nap is comfortable. The edge of the lake and the relay points will also be places for napping.
