Get ready for our second annual 24 Hour Virtual Relay! Mermaids can create or join their own team or join a Mermaid team organized by the Mermaid Series. 😍 Each leg of the relay is 60 minutes long and you can do 1 leg or multiple legs* of the relay throughout the 24 Hours!
Option 1: Create Your Own Team or Join a Friend's Team
Do the 24 Hour Virtual Relay as a part of your own team! Teams can be as small as 2 or as large as 24 people. When you create or join a team the Team Captain (you or a friend on the team) manages all aspects of the team and will be in charge of the team communication and organizing the relay slot assignments. To help out your captain, you can indicate which slot(s) you are interested in walking/running during the 24 hour virtual relay.
* You and your friends will want to nominate the Team Captain PRIOR to registration.
* The Team Captain should register first and create the TEAM NAME and CODE to share with team members. The rest of the team WILL NEED the team CODE to join the relay team during registration.
* You can have as few as 2 people or up to 24 people on your team. Each team, regardless of the number of participants is responsible for completing the full 24 Hours. (For example: If you have 6 teammates, each of you would be walking/running for 4 different hour-long slots. They can be split up however the team prefers, but each runner's slot must start at the hour, on the hour - so for this example, Suzie can run from 9-10 am, then 2-4 pm, and her last slot from 8-9 pm).
* Mermaid Series will reach out to the Team Captain to provide all needed information about organizing and setting up time slots in Sodisp, etc.
Option 2: Join a Mermaid Team
Want to participate in the 24 Hour Relay as an individual and join a Mermaid Team? Great! We will place you on a relay team managed by the Mermaid Series. During registration, choose the 1 hour time slot you would like to run and meet some new Mermaid teammates!
* Slots are assigned on a first come first served basis during registration on Race Roster.
* If you are interested in walking/running for multiple slots please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. After May 5th we will notify those interested in any slots still available.
* Your Mermaid Team Captain will reach out to you prior to the event.
How Does It Work?
Each participant will walk/jog or run at least one 1 hour time slot. Relay time slots start EVERY HOUR ON THE HOUR (Ex: 8:00 am, 9:00 am, 10:00am, etc). When the first Mermaid or Merman of your team completes their shift they "tag" the next Mermaid to start. We then rinse and repeat for 24 hours!
* If you are creating/joining your own team, you will communicate your preferences to your team captain during the registration process.
* If you are Joining a Mermaid Team you will choose from available slots during your registration.
Our awesome Mermaid Series Ambassadors will be supporting us again this year during the 24 Hour Virtual Relay! They will not only be Team Captains for the Mermaid Teams, but they will also be making Facebook guest appearances and cheering you all on!!
We need our East Coast, West Coast, European and all our International Mermaids to tail (er, step) up and take a 60 min slot. How many Mermaid Miles do you think your team can "FIN"ish together? 🤔🧜♀️🧜♂️🙌
