  8. Each participant needs to run on their assigned lane and be ready in their position to start the race.
    Numbers arew aligned in each lane like a ladder (steps) in the track so that each participant runs the same distance.
  9. If the lead-off runner makes a second false start, the team is disqualified from the event.

    The team would also be disqualified if they dropped the baton while passing or in the middle of the race.
    That is precisely why runners focus and practice their reaction so much.

    I relays, each participant needs to pass the baton among each other and all of them runs the same distance.
