Athines By The Sea (map)
These are short distance running relay races (50 - 100 meters depending on age categories), in groups of 2 children (each group).
Young athletes will take part in three age categories:
Elementary (4th, 5th and 6th grades)
Junior High school
The first athletes from each team stand behind a line formed on the floor to give the start, while the second of each team will take position on the same line as soon as the start is given.
The athletes run a straight distance of 25 or 50 meters, so that they cross a second line formed on the floor and return back to hand the baton to the second of their team, who will also run the same distance and do the same so that each of the two athletes of the team has competed twice.
Awards are by age category and: girls, boys, mixed teams.
