Each runner, of the pair, will run three 1600 meter segments. Partners touch hands in the exchange zone. Different routes will be used for each 1600 meters and each runner will run each route. Marshals will be stationed on the course to assist runners. Directional cones and flags will be used as well. The second runner will wear the number. Each team may run five (5) pair of runners in the Hokum Karem. The position of the fastest three (3) pair from each school will determine team scores.

race. Each race is run seperately. (Change from previous years)
Notes: EMT’s and athletic trainers will be on duty. Water is available on site, please
bring ice as we will not have enough for all teams.
