FAQsAnswers to all your burning questions...
So how goes the hill training? When the hay is in the barn, folks, get ready to meet your new favorite race. When you cross the finish line, you will not only have done something worthwhile for your health and your ego (we know who you are), you will have also helped to raise funds for the “Be the Match Registry”, operated by the National Marrow Donor Program, a nonprofit, life-saving organization. You will be able to join the Marrow Donor Registry at any point throughout the weekend if you are between the ages of 18-44 and in general good health (We are betting you are…), providing you the opportunity to give the greatest gift of all, a second chance of life for a desperately ill cancer or blood disorder patient.
You have worked hard to get here. We want your race day experience to be a memorable one, and we are doing everything we can to make that happen!
See you on the Bridge!

What do you use for timing?
Additionally, all relay members must touch each other to hand off the timing system. You alone should decide how to do it based on your personal relationship with your relay team members. High five, handshake, kiss, or something we cannot say online. Only you know how well you know your teammates…
