Since there are some marathon teams for Akron I thought someone might know. I've never run on a relay team but will be in November. I was reading reviews of the OKC Marathon from this past April, which I ran, and there were several complaints about the marathon teams crowding the finish line, jumping barriers to be with the team mate that ran the last leg, making it difficult to run those last few hundred feet without dodging people, etc. I do remember there being a LOT of people right on the finish line, in fact I don't have a picture of me right at the finish, they took it after I had already crossed and was looking around for DH. Needless to say I didn't order it.
So what is generally done at the finish when you are part of a team like that? Do you meet up with that last runner and run him/her in? Do you meet them after they cross the finish line?
