The 30K relay consists of two 5K and two 10K legs (5K-10K-10K-5K). Any team that deviates from the order and distance specified will be disqualified. A team can consist of from 2-4 members.

Race t-shirts are only guaranteed to runners who pre-register and pick up their shirt before gun time. Remaining shirts will be available to race day registrants and available for purchase after gun time.
