OPEN RELAY: Relay teams may consist of 2 or 3 people, completing all 3 legs of the race. Upon entering T1, the swimmer must ‘tag’ the cyclist, at which point the cyclist may unrack the bike and exit transition. During T2, the cyclist must rack their bike, then ‘tag’ the runner, at which point the runner may exit transition. Athletes cannot have a time advantage by having a bike unracked ahead of the swimmer coming in or begin running before the bike is racked.
