Event Brief: 
The Tucson Marathon Relay is a four person relay that splits up the Tucson Marathon course into four segments. The first leg is 5.9 miles from the start to the first exchange point near the Circle K at American Ave & Rockliffe Blvd in Oracle. The second leg is 7.2 miles with the second exchange point on Biosphere Road near the half marathon start. Leg three is 5.8 miles with an exchange at Oracle Jnt across from Lupe's Restaurant on Highway 77. The final leg is 7.3 miles to the finish line.

Timing Transponder
This year we will have an ankle/wrist timing transponder that will record you team’s progress down the course. You will not have timing chips on the back of your race bib, so it is IMPERATIVE that the first runner on your team that takes the shuttle to the race start has this timing transponder.

At each exchange point, you will physically transfer this transponder to the next person on your team who can attach to their ankle or wrist.
