Standard road team competing with less than 12 runners
You can continue to look for a replacement runner to take their place all the way until your team checks in at the event. Please note, if adding a runner at the event there will be a $20 fee.
Your teammates can cover the extra legs. You may cover as many of legs as you wish.
You can skip legs by texting race command on race day. You'll need to wait the allotted amount of time it would have taken the runner to complete the leg. This would put your team in the unofficial category, meaning you wouldn't be eligible for a top finisher prize (you would still get your medal of course).
