WELCOME RUNNERS LETTER FROM THE RACE DIRECTORS LETTER FROM THE RACE DIRECTORS We are excited to welcome you to the 6th annual running of the 78-mile Market to Market Relay presented by Nebraska Orthopaedic Hospital. Over the last 6 six years, the race has grown from 150 teams in 2008 to 500 teams in 2013! This year, nearly 4,000 runners will make the journey from Omaha’s Memorial Park to Lincoln’s Haymarket. We hope this is not only the largest Market to Market Relay to date, but also the best! As race directors, it’s been exciting for us to watch the tremendous popularity of the event grow each and every year, but it’s been especially rewarding to witness the positive impact the event has had on Nebraska runners, teams, companies, non-profits and local communities. Since 2008, the Market to Market Relay has been able to donate over $70,000 to local charities and community groups including the Great Plains Trails Network and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This year we are proud to make donations to over 20 Nebraska groups located in communities throughout the course. These organizations work year round to make Nebraska a better place to live and we thank you for supporting these groups by running in the race. We were also excited to learn about the positive tourism impact the race has had in Nebraska. In 2012, the 400 participating teams helped provide over $400,000 of economic impact to the state according to an analysis performed by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. This year, runners represent 34 states and 154 Nebraska communities. Just by participating, you are making our state and communities stronger. Thank you! Perhaps most importantly, we love hearing incredible stories from runners about how the Market to Market Relay inspired them to live a more active and healthy lifestyle. Whether this is your first race or fiftieth, we salute you for challenging yourself and supporting your teammates with their goals. Run safe, drive safe, thank a volunteer, enjoy your teammates and we’ll see you in the Haymarket after the race at the Gatorade Post-Race Shindig & Expo! Jason Bakewell & Ben Cohoon | Race Directors

RACE COURSE SAFETY Safety is the first and foremost priority. It is important that all runners and drivers realize that the race course occasionally crosses traffic and follows roadways. Please error on the side of caution, drive slowly, be alert, read the following safety tips and have a great race!

Runner Safety Please read and understand all race rules and seek clarification as needed. Beware of vehicles, THE COURSE IS OPEN TO VEHICLE TRAFFIC. A significant portion of the race course crosses “live” roads. Obey all traffic and pedestrian laws, unless instructed differently by a police officer. Course Signage: Follow all M2M Relay signs and read the stage directions in this guide carefully. It is your job to know the running route — the signs are only there to assist you. We recommend carrying water and a cell phone while running. Run Against Traffic: Runners must run against traffic if running on city or county roads unless instructed otherwise. VISIBILITY GEAR: All teams are REQUIRED to have at least 2 reflective safety vests, 2 headlamps and 2 blinking LED taillights. One of each MUST be worn by all runners beginning a new Stage during Official Nighttime Hours, before 7:30am and after 6:30pm. No Headphones: Runners may not use iPods, MP3 players, earphones or any other equipment that interferes with their hearing. Music devices with speakers below the head are allowed if it does not interfere with your hearing. YOU NEED TO HEAR APPROACHING VEHICLES. Water: Runners are in charge of their own water on the course. There will not be water areas between Exchange Points. Teams should bring enough water to last the duration of the race. As a way to reduce race day waste, plastic cups will not be provided. Please bring your own reusable, refillable water bottles and team water jugs.

Vehicle and Driver Safety Beware of runners on the driving course. A significant portion of the race course crosses roads. Please refer to the Rules Concerning Vehicles section on page 8. Tips for Successful and Safe Driving: • Focus on driving! • Have your co-pilot read driving directions and give you instructions. • Know where you are going and look at the map before you start driving. • Do not arrive at Exchange Points significantly early.

Water, Food and Team Emergency Gear It is your team’s responsibility to carry adequate team water, food, blankets, first aid supplies, cell phones, clothing layers and rain gear in your vehicle.

Emergency Information In case of emergency, dial 911. On-Course Medical: Basic first aid kits are available at all Exchange Points. On-Course Medical support with advanced first aid and response skills will be stationed at Exchange Points 2, 4, 6, 8, 11, 13, 15, 17, 20, and the Finish Line. Look for this red marker on the stage maps. Notify the nearest volunteer and the Race Emergency Director with any concerns or emergencies HAM Radio Volunteers will be located at most Exchange Points. These special volunteers can help connect you with medical volunteers, other Exchange Points or help answer general questions you may have. Race Emergency Director: (402) 890-2123 (cell)

RACE COURSE SAFETY Police Assistance and Traffic Laws Runners will be provided with police assistance at Stages 1, 20 and 21. Runners MUST obey all traffic laws unless instructed otherwise by a police officer. NOTE: If for some reason during the day your team is delayed either because of heavy traffic when crossing a street or because of a train — these situations are considered part of the course.

Lightning Rule Lightning at the start of the race may result in a delayed start until the lightning clears. If you see lightning on the course after the race has started, get your runner off the road and into your team vehicle. Be conservative, error on the side of safety and caution, and follow these procedures: • Make a note of the time and the location where you exited the course. • If lightning clears within 30 minutes put your runner back on the road where they left and make a note of the time. • If lightning persists longer than 30 minutes, move ahead one Exchange Point and follow volunteer instructions. For every 30 minutes of lightning delay, please move ahead one Exchange Point. • Keep accurate track of where and when you left the course and where and when you returned to the course. • Turn this information into M2M Headquarters on your Team Scorecard after you finish. We will then calculate your average pace and apply this pace to the segment of the course that you missed and will provide you with an official adjusted race time.

RACE RULES General Rules 1. Team Matrix: Teams shall consist of six, seven or eight runners. Teams must run in a fixed order and each runner shall complete multiple legs of the Relay, called Stages. Each Stage will be approximately 3 to 5 miles. Teams must carry a “baton,” passing it from runner to runner at each Exchange Point. There will be 21 Stages and, therefore, 21 Exchange Points and a Team Finish (the starting line is Exchange Point 1). 2. Minimum Team Speed: Teams arriving at the finish line after 9:10 pm will not receive a finish time.

Rules Concerning Vehicles Please use your best judgment when driving, and please watch for runners and other pedestrians. 1. Vehicles and Runners: Vehicles may not stop to interact or support runners on the course unless an injury has occurred or a runner has taken a wrong turn. Vehicles must always take the Driver’s Path. Please remember, runners are in charge of their own water and nutrition while running between Exchange Points and may not be supported. 2. Number of Vehicles and Types Allowed: Team vehicles must be less than seven feet in width and less than 20 feet in length. Large vans, minivans and SUV’s are allowed. No RVs, mini-buses, trailers or limos are allowed. All vehicle passengers must have access to a safety belt. Team’s violating this rule will be immediately disqualified. 3. Location of ID Tag: Registered team vehicles must display an official identification tag in the front and rear window. The tag must be visible to race officials at the Exchange Points. Only team vehicles displaying the official tag will be allowed to park at the Exchange Points. 4. Driving Directions: Team vehicles should follow the driving directions provided in the Race Day Guide. Directions have been designed to eliminate vehicle contact with runners and to provide the quickest route to the next Exchange Point. If a vehicle gets lost or takes a wrong turn and does not reach the next Exchange Point in time, the time is lost and will not be awarded back. 5. Traffic Laws: Team vehicles MUST obey all speed limits, traffic signs, other traffic laws and instructions from race officials. 6. Runner safety: Team vehicles must drive at a normal rate of speed. Vehicles may not block or interfere with other vehicles, and must yield the right of way to runners at all times. 7. Parking: At the Exchange Points, team vehicles must park in designated areas only. Vehicles may not stop within the Exchange Point area, even to discharge runners, until parked in the designated area.

THIS SECTION IS A SUMMARY OF IMPORTANT RACE RULES. All teams ARE TO download a copy of the Complete Race Rules for their team vehicle from m2mrelay.com. 8


Rules Concerning Runners 1. Running Order: Team members will run in a fixed order. For example, on a seven-person team, Runner 1 will complete Stages 1, 8 and 15; Runner 2 will complete stages 2, 9 and 16; and so on. On a sixperson team, Runner 1 will complete Stages 1, 7, 13 and 19. Runner 2 will complete Stages 2, 8, 14 and 20; and so on. See the complete runner matrices on page 12. 2. Official Bibs: Runners must wear their official race bib numbers corresponding to their position on the team. The first runner must wear a number ending in “1”, the second runner must wear a number ending in “2” and so on. Race numbers must be visible from the front. 3. Baton Exchange: The “baton” must be passed from one runner to the next within the defined Exchange Zone at each Exchange Point. Runners must carry the “baton” so that it is visible to race officials while approaching and leaving the Exchange Zone. Batons will be supplied at the Start Line to the first runner and will also serve as the timing chip. 4. Wrong Turn: Runners who take a wrong turn must return to the course where they left it and continue on the correct route. Runners may use the team vehicle or other transportation to return to the correct route, provided they complete the entire correct route unaided. 5. Traffic Laws: Unless a police officer instructs you differently, you need to obey all pedestrian traffic laws.

Rules Concerning All Participants 1. NO LITTERING: Participants must leave the course litter-free. Teams are encouraged to use the trash bags given in the race packets to leave the course better than we found it. 2. NO PUBLIC URINATION: Participants should only use the bathroom facilities provided. No public urination or other public relief is allowed. 3. NO CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL: Consumption of alcohol is not allowed at any time while participating in the race. Even if you have completed your last Stage, you are still participating in the race until your team has crossed the finish line. Do not start the party early. Alcohol may be consumed responsibly at the finish line party when city ordinances and permits allow. Please no outside alcoholic beverages at the finish line party. There is zero tolerance on any of these rules. Violation of any of these rules will result in an automatic team disqualification and you will be asked to leave the course.

TO REPORT A SAFETY CONCERN OR RULE VIOLATION, PLEASE SEND A TEXT MESSAGE TO 402-890-2067. INCLUDE VIOLATING TEAM NUMBER, LOCATION & RULE VIOLATION OR SAFETY CONCERN.

TEAM SPOTLIGHT CHARIOTS ON FIRE For those teams that have competed in the Market to Market Relay all 6 years, the team name “Chariots On Fire” should immediately conjure images of a flaming red, orange and yellow horse and chariot cleverly mounted on the top of a team minivan.With team uniforms that match their horse mascot named Blaze, Chariots On Fire will again be one of the most recognizable teams on the course this year. Hometowns Represented: Lincoln, New Castle, and Omaha. What makes your team special, interesting or unique? We have had 18 different people run on Chariots on Fire over the course of the 6 years, but have kept the same team name for all 6 years and have tried to improve our van decoration each year, always involving horses and flames. It is also our last year under the name Chariots On Fire. Our horse mascot, Blaze, will be retiring after this year’s race, so you’ll see a retirement theme from us this year and we want to give this theme one last hurrah! What will be on the radio in your team vehicle? Our CD of running pump-up songs, including “Chariots of Fire,” “St. Elmo’s Fire,” “Eye of the Tiger,” “Dancing Queen,” and of course, “Beer for my Horses.” What will be your favorite team food in the van? Baggies of peanut M & M’s...definitely the favorite! What are you looking forward to most about the Market to Market Relay? One of our old teammates made a team of priests and our Bishop this year, so we look forward to racing against them. We also look forward to the camaraderie within our own team as well as with the other 499 teams out there. We run the M2M Relay because it is the most fun running experience we have all year! That is the #1 reason we come back each year! It will be a great day!
