Relay Baggage Exchange

Each runner should create a bag of post-run gear to get when they reach the zone at the end of their relay leg.

Relay teammates will have the previous leg runner’s clothes bag with them and hand it to the incoming runner.

Your post-run gear bag will be in the Baggage Bus that Runner #1 put on the bus for you. These buses will be on Mehring Way at the exit of the Recovery Area.
