The relay comprises of one of the team running whilst the others rest, before they get to go again.
Athletes enter as teams of TWO. The first runs 1 Mile, then hands over to the other, and so on until the full distance is completed. The teams RACE each other over 26 x 1 Mile, with every runner completing thirteen legs (other distances, number of team members or legs strictly not allowed)
The 385 yards? As the 26th mile is completed, the incoming runner is JOINED by their teammate for a final ‘mini-lap’, marked out in the general Finish area. The distance of this smaller lap is exactly HALF of 385 yards (or 352m) and both members of the team cover this TOGETHER, ensuring correct completion of distance for all. The teams therefore RACE each other over a FULL Marathon, with each member completing an EXACT Half Marathon of running.
