Why to they carry a baton in relay races?


One of the more important things to remember when running a relay, is to hold on the baton. When instructing a team of runners on how to run a relay race, this point should be emphasized. In most meets where relay races are run, there is a rule that any team who drops the baton, and it leaves the surface of the track, is disqualified.

Keeping possession of the baton is an easy thing to do, and if practiced, as is more necessary for the 4 x 100m and 4 x 200m relays with blind handoffs, will allow your team to remain in the race.
