Subject: P.H.E

Topic: Relay Race


A relay race is a racing competition where members of a team take turns completing parts of race course or performing a certain action. Relay races take the form of professional races and amateur games. Relay races are common in running, orienteering, swimming, cross-country skiing, biathlon and ice skating (usually with a baton in the fist) in the Olympic Games, there are several types of relay races that are part of track and field.

Rules of relay race

Passing the baton, after each runner runs his legs of the 400 meter relay race, he hands off the baton to his teammate. That teammate must receive the baton within a 20-meter area.

If the pass comes before or after that area, the pass is considered illegal, and the team is disqualified.

Medley relay events are occasionally held in track meets usually consisting of teams of four runners running progressively long distances. The distance medley relay consists of four legs run at distances of 1200, 400, 800, and 1,600 metres, in that order.
