A relay team is made up of two or three participants who compete in a group format during the race. Team members are divided up among the three stages of the course, with one team member competing in no more than two legs of the course: swim, bike, or run. Teams may be made up of any two or three participants regardless of gender, affiliation, or relationship. There is no upper age limit, but team members must be over the age of 18. Teams may consist of all men, all women, or a mix. Awards are presented to the top three teams finishing in the following categories: All Male, All Female, and Mixed.
