(26.2 Miles Total) will be an exciting and accessible way for groups and individuals to participate in the Empire State Marathon at a distance less than the Marathon and Half Marathon. Each Team will have a team member stationed at each leg to hand off to. Busing will be provided to each location so all members can park at the Finish line and will also be picked up from their finishing exchange location to be bused back to the Finish Line.
The Marathon Relay transfer locations are roughly every 6 to 7 miles at sites based on best positions for exchange, spectators and the pick-up of participants. Slap bracelet passing is optional per relay team and may be picked up at packet pick-up at the Expo on the 17th and 18th.
