-Second leg must go to the half way point or Aid Station number 4 adjacent to the 1st cattle guard.  You can take your own vehicle there and exchange with your partner.

Four Person Relay

-First leg will start at Fleming Beach in Kapalua

-Relay team must have their own vehicle(ONE) that will drive to each exchange zone on the course and drop off their relay member.  Each of the 3 zones will have a sign which designates where the zone is.  We suggest to drive prior and look for the PINK spray on the road to see where the zones are.  They are written as follows(R1, R2, R3).  These zones also serve as Aid Stations to.  Also on the ground you will see aid station marks.   Example(R1/A2=Relay Zone 1 & Aid Station 2, R2/A4=Relay Zone 2 & Aid Station 4, R3/A6=Relay Zone 3 & Aid Station 6).  Race day we will have signs.  All runners will be running with traffic.

-When parking on the side of the road, please park way off the road.  Drop your team member off, wait for the exchange and pick up team member and move to next exchange zone.  AGAIN ONE CAR ONLY.
