|Timing||This event is a fundraiser for THS track and field. There will be no fancy chip timing for this event. We will keep finish times for teams, but individual leg times need to be kept by the team. We will provide a split sheet for you to fill out during the race. You can then submit split times online to be a part of the archive. Finish times will be available at the finish, but leg times will not be available until later that weekend. They will be posted on the website at www.threecapesrelay.com.|
|Awards||Every participant will receive a custom Three Capes Relay Medal when crossing the finish line. There will be no awards given to winning teams as the finishing time is so staggered.|
