Here's an idea of how the relay races work: After all the kids are timed during the time trials, they are paired with another kid who runs at about the same pace. Then the relay teams are formed with the youngest runner (Lia) kick-starting the race. After Lia runs, the relays begin. The youngest runners follow the rules and don't cheat. The older runners are not so sweet and innocent. ;-) This video is of the little ones at the start of the race.
