Finishing as a team

Teammates often cross the Finish Line with their “anchor” who is officially finishing the race. If your team chooses to do so, make sure:
Your Leg 36 “anchor” runner leads your team to the Finish Line

Listen for announcements of team members arriving near the finish

The Leg 36 runner will be the only one to remove the timing chip and be credited with an official finish.

Awards are given to the top 6 teams in each category.
