RULES

 

The baton must be held the entire race.  If the baton is dropped, pick it up and continue the race.

The incoming runner must hand the baton to the outgoing runner.  You are not allowed to throw the baton.

The incoming and outgoing runners must stay within their lanes the entire race.

The baton must be exchanged within the exchange zones.  Your body does not have to be in the exchange zone but the baton does.

When the race is over, do not drop or throw the baton.  Doing either thing will cause a disqualification. 

 

 

RUNNING WITH THE BATON

 

While holding the baton in the blocks, get in a normal stance.

Squeeze the baton into the crease between the thumb and the index finger.  The baton is allowed to go across the line.

When the gun goes off, make a loose fist around the baton.

Keep a loose but solid grip on the baton.  Do not squeeze it.

There are many ways to hold a baton.  Do what is comfortable for you but also conducive to exchanging the baton.

If you need to adjust the baton, hit the baton against your hip.  Do not hit it with your knee because the force will knock it out of your hand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

BLIND EXCHANGES (4x100, 4x200)

 

SETTING YOUR MARKS

 

Marks will be set from the little triangle.

The athlete will measure a certain amount of foot lengths away from the little triangle. 

For the 4x100, the mark will be 16-20 foot lengths.

For the 4x200, the mark will be 10-14 foot lengths.

Mark will be an estimate and will constantly be adjusted.  All athletes should be athletic and recognize changes from the norm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

STARTING POSITION

 

You will line-up with your back leg right in front of the tip of the small triangle.

If you are lining up on the straight, point your feet forward.  If you are lining up on the curve, point your feet on the angle of the curve.
