There are 3 team divisions:
Each team of two will have one timing device.
The first and last 500 meter run (500m run before DEKA Zone 1 & 500m run before DEKA Zone 10) must be completed by both teammates.
All other running can be divided however the team members prefer – One teammate running the entire 500m or one teammate running the first lap and the other teammate running the 2nd lap.
At the start of the race, both team members will be at the start line together and they will run the first 500m run together.
After both team members enter DEKA Zone 1, the repetitions can begin. Once the repetitions are completed, 1 of the 2 teammates will begin the next 500m run.
The teammate not running has two options – stage themselves on the outside of DEKA Zone 2 in the Running Hand Off Zone or stage themselves inside DEKA Zone 2 in preparation for completing Zone 2.
This leaves the runner with two options – hand off to their teammate in the Running Hand Off Zone after running the first lap or run the entire 500m.
This process will continue until the final 500m run which takes place after completing DEKA Zone 9. *As stated above, both teammates must run the first and final 500m run together.
Running Hand Off Zones will all be located on the outside of the running track in front of the DEKA Zone 2-9 entry points.
If a team is splitting up a 500m run, the timing device will be handed off at the Hand Off Zone located in front of the DEKA Zone that is to be completed next, and the team member who handed off will then move inside the DEKA Zone.
Small exit/entry points (different location than the main DEKA Zone entry/exit points) will be located inside DEKA Zones to allow for easy access to the next DEKA Zone.
Once both competitors are inside the DEKA Zone, repetitions, meters, and calories can be divided however the team prefers.
DEKA Zone repetitions, meters, or calories CAN NOT begin until both competitors are inside the zone.
500m runs CAN NOT begin until all repetitions, meters, calories are completed.
*Teammates must stay together inside the DEKA Zones (the upcoming runner CAN NOT stage themselves at the zone exit while their teammate is completing the zone work) If one team member is running the entire 500m run, the other team member will go straight to the next DEKA Zone.
After completing DEKA Zone 9, both teammates must run the final 500m run together. After completing DEKA Zone 10 both teammates must cross the finish line together within 5 meters of each other.
If a team member is unable to finish the race, the team will receive a DNF (did not finish). Team members can divide up repetitions, meters, and calories using whatever strategy they prefer, but there can only be one person at a time completing the work.
The team must use the same station (rep completion area/mat, rower, ski, bike, tank) for all repetitions, meters, calories. Co-Ed teams are allowed to switch back and forth between male/female weights if dividing reps during a zone but a male is NOT allowed to use the female weight.
