FAQ's

Here you can find our most frequently asked questions!

How many people can we have in a team?

We recommend 10-15 people per team. More than 15 members can be difficult for team captains to manage and give everyone an opportunity to take to the track. If your team is growing, consider splitting it into two and have more members to join in the fun of Relay! With fewer than 10, it can be hard to keep someone on the track for the whole event.

How do I register a team?

Registering for RFL Bermuda is very easy through our online sign up. Head over to the Participate portion of the website and follow instructions. There is also a new user guide to follow if you are unsure. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call 236-1001 and we can take you through it step by step.

How do I get a shirt?

Each team member is asked to raise a minimum of $100 and they will receive a FREE relay t-shirt.

Is there a minimum age for team members?

No, however all youth teams (under 18 years) must have two adult supervisors at the event at all times.

Do we have to fundraise?

All donations, no matter how big or small, are greatly appreciated. There are also awards presented to the highest fundraising teams. If you need help, please contact us and we can help you achieve your fundraising goal!

What does my registration fee cover?

Your registration fee includes a location on the field, help from our amazing team of volunteers to get your team organized, and a whole lot of FUN!!

Does everyone dress up?

We encourage teams to have a theme and decorate their campsite. Dress up and make Relay colorful and fun! You could also win prizes. If you don’t want to dress-up, that’s completely fine too. Your contribution to the day is still really important to us, and we’d love to see you there.

Do all team members need to stay overnight at the track?

No. We understand that some people won't be able to be at the track for the whole event. We ask that a member of each team is walking the track at all times during the 24 hrs. Of course the more the merrier!

Do I need to do a minimum number of laps or hours?

No. Relay isn’t a race or endurance test; we simply ask that teams have at least one person on the track at all times. Some team members may set personal goals and end up doing more laps than others. You can also walk in pairs or groups to make it more enjoyable.

Can I bring my pet?

Sorry, no pets are permitted at any Relay For Life event. Service dogs are an exception.

Are vehicles, roller blades, bikes, scooters, etc. allowed on the track?

All vehicles are prohibited from the track without permission from the Committee. Child strollers and wheelchairs are allowed. No roller blades, bicycles or scooters are allowed. We suggest you contact the Committee before the event to determine restrictions.

Can I take part in the Survivors and Caregivers lap and Candlelight Ceremony without being on a Relay for Life team?

Yes. These ceremonies are the highlight of Relay For Life and we want to see as many people as possible taking part! Click here to find out more and register your participation.

What happens if it's raining?

The event will go ahead, rain or shine. In extreme bad weather the organising Committee will decide if it’s safe for the event to continue.

Will first aid be available?

First Aid will be in attendance for the entire event.

Are there any rules we should be aware of?

Each event has different rules specific to the event location, however there are some universal Relay For Life rules. View the Rules-and-Regulations for more information.

Can visitors come to Relay for Life without registering a team?

Yes, through general admission. All you have to do is donate $10 at the gate to enter. Relay is an open event and we encourage people to come and see what it’s all about, especially if you’ve never been before. Come and get involved, donations are gratefully accepted.

How can my business get involved?

Relay For Life can’t happen without the support and sponsorship from businesses as well as the general public. We seek sponsorship contributions in the form of cash sponsorship, in-kind contributions, corporate teams, matched workplace giving, signage, giveaways and entertainment (to name a few!). To find out more about sponsorship opportunities please view Sponsorship information here.
