Why do they run relay races?

Start to Finish

Relay races are very fun and very exciting. They involve teams of four runners, each running a separate race, known as a leg. The relay race begins when the first of the four runners begins their leg, and ends when the fourth runner finishes their leg.

In order to continue the race without starting a new one at the end of each leg, the four runners pass a stick, known as a baton, to each other, signifying the end of one leg, and the start of another. The runners carry the baton during their entire leg.
