Captains Corner


Welcome to the Tobacco Road Relay and congratulations on being selected / nominated / elected / volunteered...or however you've stepped into the role as "CAPTAIN" for your squad.  Thank you for filling this critical role.  All communication, such as email updates, between your team and the Tobacco Road Relay will go through you.  You'll be responsible to share the information with your team.  In addition, you'll be your team lead at packet pick-up and our point of contact (if needed) during the race.  The best leaders delegate, so don't hesitate to spread the planning duties among your fellow teammates.  The Captain's Corner page is a brief overview only.  Please reference the full website for all details and please contact TRR at any time if we could assist.



Once a team is registered, all communication between the team and the Tobacco Road Relay must go through the Team Captain. It is the Team Captain's responsibility to share all applicable information with team members.


Team Seeding

Teams with a 10K seed slower than 10:20/mile should communicate with the race director prior to registration.  The race course and finish line will close Saturday at 8:00 PM.


Team Handbook

The TEAM HANDBOOK with course updates, etc. will be available on-line approximately 4 weeks before the Relay.  It is the captain's responsibility to make sure each team member gets a copy. Course maps can be printed from the website. Last minute course changes do happen. Course/Leg changes will be emailed to captains, within 2 days of race day. All changes made the Wednesday prior to the race, will also be distributed at time of Packet Pick-up and Sign-in. 


Team Check-in

  3. Race bib issue.  Every runner is required to wear a bib on their front while running.
