The EDUNOVA TRAIL RELAY works like this:
There are 3 trail 'loops' or distances.
Loop 1 is 1km, loop 2 is 3km and loop 3 is 5km.
There are 4 team members.
Teams arrange themselves in pairs and each pair then runs each of the distances/routes in their pairs.
This means that each team pair will have to complete 1km + 3km + 5km = Total of 9km
Once the team has completed the 9km the entire team of 4 will need to run one final 1km loop together to complete the relay race.
Team members 1 & 2 runs 1km then hands the baton to team members 3 & 4
Team members 3 & 4 runs the 1km then hands the baton to team members 1 & 2
Team members 1 & 2 runs 3km then hands the baton to team members 3 & 4
Team members 3 & 4 runs the 3km then hands the baton to team members 1 & 2
Team members 1 & 2 runs 5km then hands the baton to team members 3 & 4
Team members 3 & 4 runs the 5km then joins team members 1 & 2 to all run a final 1km loop.
The team must finish this final 1km loop together and once they cross the finish line the event is complete!
