In 2013 many teams incorporated a Driver, Cyclist or Companion Runner / Walker to accompany their team. Many teams requested that these individuals, in these support roles with their team, be able to receive the event shirt, finisher’s medal, and any other item that the participants would receive. Relay Around Columbus now has an optional 2014 program to accommodate for these individuals if they want to receive these items.
To register a Driver, Cyclist or Companion Runner / Walker, the Captain must register them (on the RAC registration page), to ‘join’ the team, and will be charged a fee to address these participant items. This registration is separate from the team registration and must be done by the Captain. A team may have any or all of these people join their team provided that the are registered on line, sign a waiver at the start (with the other team members), and the team vehicle must be large enough to have a seat belt for each these individuals along with team members. EX. 9 total team members – 9 seat belts.
Please note that this on line registration is only a requirement for teams that would like to have a Driver, Cyclist or Companion Runner / Walker and would like to have these same items that the participants receive. If these individuals do not want these items, then teams may still incorporate these people into their teams, but they will not have to have them register online. However, they will have to register their information (name, phone, emergency contact info, etc) and sign waivers at check-in at the start of the event. In addition, the team vehicle must have enough seats with seat belts to accommodate them in the team vehicle.
