Did You Know?
The Norwegian Holmenkollstafetten happens to be the largest relay event in the world, with 2,944 teams of 15 that start and end the race at Bislett Stadium in Oslo. It had a total of 44,160 relay-competitors on May 10, 2014.
In a relay race, each team member is responsible for covering a certain portion of the distance carrying a baton, which needs to be passed to the next team member as soon as possible, so that he/she may carry it further until the final teammate takes it to the finishing line. What's ever-inspiring and wonderful about relay races is the whole idea of shouldering a certain responsibility on which the success or failure of the other members, and of course, the entire point of winning or losing depends. We think that these events sort of imbibe a higher sense of responsibility on each participant because during the event, each member is not actually starting and ending at the same point together, unlike other games. The distance and the entire thought of being a portion of a bigger cause is motivating and intimidating at the same time.

When it comes to choosing a team name for relay races, it is always better to choose something that not only motivates and lifts the spirits of each and every member, but something that brings up the fun-in-the-run element to the whole feel of the game. We bet there are many names that will serve this purpose efficaciously, but what will give your team name that added oomph is a dash of creativity and pun! The following section will give you a list of 102 unique suggestions.
