Handover

Sport: Track Events - Relay Events

The term used to describe the passing of the baton from one team member to another. The handover must take place in a 20m changeover zone. If the handover takes place outside this zone, the team is disqualified. The baton’s position, not the runner’s position, determines whether the handover was legitimate.
