21K + 21K= ¡Marathon Relays!

If you still don't feel ready to take on a full marathon but your greatest wish is to participate, then you can do it as a relay! Partner up with another runner and share the route: 21 kilometres each participant. The accumulated times will indicate your position in the general classification.

This is how it works:
- The first runner starts the race at the starting point along with the rest of the 10K runners,
- We will establish the relay zone around kilometre 21, where, after contacting your partner, he or she will continue to run while you abandon the route,
-The second runner completes the distance until reaching the finish line.

Choose well! Here individual speed counts, but the key to this new modality is collaboration and understanding between you and your partner.
