Red, White & Boom! TC Half Marathon

Two-Person Relay

Not up for the 13.1 miles alone? Find a buddy to split the course with you and register for the relay!

How it Works

The two- person relay is the perfect way to participate with a friend while running half the miles of a half-marathon. Relay teams will receive one slap bracelet at packet pick up. This bracelet will start with the person running the first leg. The first runner will hand the slap bracelet to runner number two at the transition area and only then will runner number two be allowed to start his/her leg. Runners will be shuttled to their designated areas (see below). The first male team, female team, and co-ed teams will receive awards to be mailed after the race.


Each Person on a Relay Team Receives:

  • A designated race number (NOTE: It does not matter who actually runs each leg, as long as each runner is wearing his/her assigned number.) 

  • A timing chip for either the scoring mat at the start and transition areas or the transition and the finish areas for each runner’s split

  • A participant t-shirt 

  • A commemorative pint glass 

  • A finisher medal (at the transition area for first leg runners and finish for second leg runners).


$110 per team (through February 10)

$120 per team (February 11 - June 5)

$130 per team (June 6 - June 28*)

*Two-Person Relay registration is online only and is no longer available once online registration closes.

Shuttle Buses

Shuttle Buses will be available at the start/finish area to transport second leg runners to the transition area. These buses will depart to the transition area promptly at 6:00 a.m. and will stay at the transition area to bring 1st leg runners back to the finish area. Buses will return to the finish area as they fill, so there may be a wait time between return trips. There is no official event parking near the transition area. If you choose to drive to the transition area and park a car in the residential neighborhood, please be respectful and do not block driveways.

Sweats Check

A sweats check will be available at the transition area. If the second runner checks a bag at the transition area, it is the responsibility of the teammate to claim that bag and bring it back to the finish area. All checked bags must have the sweats label from the bottom of your race number safety pinned to the bag. Checked bags may only be reclaimed by the person that checked it or the person’s teammate.

Transition Area

Water and Porta-Potties will be available at the transition area for relay teams. The first runner will need to be at the transition area by 8:15 a.m. otherwise they will be asked to board the closing vehicle. The transition area will officially close and the last bus will depart for the finish area by 8:30 a.m. 1st leg runners will be eligible to receive post-race amenities in the finish chute. Please have your race bib visible to gain access to this area.


Participants must be able to complete the entire half marathon in 3 ½ hours, which generally means maintaining an average pace of 16:00 per mile. The half marathon finish line will remain open until 10:00 a.m.
