Race Day Tips & V2V Contact Info

Please remember these top four things for race day:

  1. Have fun and cheer on your teammates and others.
  2. Know where you are running and when to make turns.  Carry your phone and use the RaceJoy App, GPS or printed instructions to help.
  3. Carry your own hydration while you are running if needed. There are no water stops or aid stations on the course.
  4. Follow our driving directions for each leg to help with navigation

Race Weekend Reminders

Open Roads Course
This is an open roads course.  Stay alert and run against traffic unless otherwise directed by course signage, law enforcement, staff or volunteers. Please pay attention to driver directions versus runner directions to protect the safety of our runners.

Safety & Hydration Equipment - REQUIRED BY ALL TEAMS
Safety equipment includes a reflective vest, head lamp, and blinking LED light. Every team should have two of each item. These are required for all runners who may start or end their run in the dark.  Event staff and volunteers will let teams know if safety items are required for that leg prior to the runner starting.

All runners must carry water or hydration fluid during any run where the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (the measure of heat stress in direct sunlight) reaches an elevated threat level.  Hydration packs or hand-held water bottles are recommended and we do suggest that each person have their own hydration system available on race day. Our staff team will monitor the WBGT during race day and notify teams and event volunteers if the hydration safety requirement is put in place.  

Starting Line
Please arrive at the starting line no more than 25 minutes prior to your start time. Your first runner can enter the starting line area when their start wave is announced and should plan to start at your exact starting time. 

Slap Bracelets
Slap bracelets will be picked up at the starting line and should be used to pass between each active runner along the course. Your team’s timing chip will be 
attached to the slap bracelet. Timing chips must be turned in at the finish line.

Team Vehicles & Hangtags
Each team is allowed only one team vehicle on the course and your vehicle hangtag must be displayed on your rearview mirror for the entirety of the race. This hangtag will be required to park at transition areas and at designated team parking lots at the finish line. Reminder no RV’s, Limo’s, or Buses are 
allowed on the course.

Transition Area Opening & Closing Times
Transition areas on the course will be open at designated times for each leg. Teams that run more than 30 seconds per mile faster or slower than your 
submitted team pace may run the risk of having to hold at a transition or skip a leg. V2V HQ will communicate directly with teams about holding or skipping legs. Teams that skip legs will be able to have two runners run the next leg together.

Food and Hydration
Bring the food and water that you need for yourself for the full day. There are limited food options along the course, so it is important that your team van is well stocked with food and drinks. Also, this is a pack in/pack out event, so please put all garbage in the trash bag provided in your team bag.

Active runners must wear the team bib while on the course. Your bib also has a detachable coupon to claim your first beer from Yee-Haw Brewing Company at the finish line celebration. Safety pins are in the team packet.

Medals for each team member are in your team bag. We encourage you to place medals on your teammates as they finish their final leg of the relay! Have a blast out there and stay safe!!!
