We recommend 10-15 people per team. More than 15 members can be difficult for team captains to manage and give everyone an opportunity to take to the track. If your team is growing, consider splitting it into two and have more members to join in the fun of Relay! With fewer than 10, it can be hard to keep someone on the track for the whole event.
Registering for RFL Bermuda is very easy through our online sign up form. We use a service called RunSignup to handle team registration & fundraising. Head over to the Participate page for links to the registration form, guides & other registration options
Your registration fee includes a location on the field, help from our amazing team of volunteers to get your team organized, and a whole lot of FUN .
All you have to do is raise $100! Each team member is asked to raise a minimum of $100 and they will receive a FREE 2017 relay t-shirt!
You can register online - go to the 'Participate' portion of the website and follow instructions. There is also a new user guide to follow if you are unsure. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call 236-1001 and we can take you through it step by step.

We encourage teams to have a theme and decorate their campsite. Dress up and make Relay colorful and fun! You could also win prizes. If you don’t want to dress-up, that’s completely fine too. Your contribution to the day is still really important to us, and we’d love to see you there.
No. We understand that some people won’t be able to be at the track for the whole event. We ask that team members try to stay at the track for as long as possible to support each other and share the Relay roster, particularly late at night.
No. Relay isn’t a race or endurance test; we simply ask that teams have at least one person on the track at all times. Some team members may set personal goals and end up doing more laps than others. You can also walk in pairs or groups to make it more enjoyable.
Lap counting is an "honor system", with each team and team member counting their laps. Teams must advise their participation at registration. A lap refers to the "baton" only and not the number of people. One person equals one lap. Two people at the same time equals one lap.
All vehicles are prohibited from the track without permission from the Committee. Child strollers and wheelchairs are allowed. No roller blades, bicycles or scooters are allowed. We suggest you contact the Committee before the event to determine restrictions.
