The DHL relay is all about teamwork. Each participant runs 5 km carrying a baton that is passed from hand to hand until the last team member crosses the finish line. At a more relaxed tempo, the five members comprising the teams of walkers complete their 5-km route together.

From amateurs to experienced runners: participants have different starting points. Others prefer encouraging their team on from the sidelines.
