Relay Teams/Relay Point Volunteers

If you are member of a relay team, discuss within your team prior to the run who will run which section of the 20km. Each team receives one number which will have to be handed over to the co-runner of the same team at either the 5km, 10km or 15km relay point.

Relay points 5km and 15km will be right after the official km mark. Relay point 10km is at the junction of Avenue Victoria (coming out of the Bois de la Cambre) and Avenue Franklin Roosevelt - on the lawn in the center of the road and on the left side of the running track.

15km volunteers need to be present from 11.15 am to 12.15 pm

Volunteers at relay points [see exact locations above]: your role on the day of the race is to:

- Assist arriving runners to remove their tabard/dossard & help pin it to the next team member.
- Assist arriving runners to cross out their emergency contact number on their tabard/dossard & write in the emergency contact number of the next team member.
- Check off arriving/departing runners to ensure that all have passed through (NB call GSM# if runner(s) do not arrive to check they are running)

Please take the following supplies to the relay points with you:
