A team is made up of 2 or 3 people. 3 people may include a runner, a biker and a runner. If you have 2 people, one person will be doing 2 of the events. For instance, Runner 1 may also be doing the running 2 portion. A team is working together for one finish time. Your team will have one timing chip, which is a velcro strap to be worn on your ankle. The timing chip is worn by Runner 1, then given to the biker then given to Runner 2. You will meet each other in the “transition area” where you will do the exchange of the timing chip. The transition area is where you will park your bike, and keep all of your belongings. It is a secure, fenced in area.
