Unlike a typical 5K or even a marathon, no one person completes an entire Athena Relay Race. Instead, the race is broken up into legs, which can range from 2.5-9 miles or more. Teams determine their own pace, and can start earlier or later in the day according to how fast they can move. It's up to the team to motivate each other throughout the course, which makes the relay race a perfect way to bond with friends and family, or show up childhood enemies.
