The Hawke's Bay Relay for Life cancer fundraising event has changed its format in order to meet Covid-19 restrictions.
The details of the new format for the event on October 17 at Hawke's Bay Regional Sports Park, were discussed by the near 50 teams captains on Tuesday night.
Relay for Life aims to collect donations for the Cancer Society in Hawke's Bay region but also create a safe and healthy environment for its participants.
It will only take teams about three hours to complete and the whole team will do the three-hour journey together.

The event will be made up of 30 minutes' walk around the limestone path and more than two hours of fun activities with the intention to celebrate with the survivors of cancer and remember loved ones lost.
Event manager David Trim said the feedback received regarding the new policies were positive.
Relay for Life 2020 has seen 170 supporters, 260 donations and a total of $14,749 of donation on its website so far.
Event coordinator Hawke's Bay Cancer Society, Pip Taylor said: "We encourage teams to raise $1000-$3000, however some teams have incredible means to raise over three times this amount."
All funds raised will be used for the shuttle service to Palmerston North, education materials and to provide support services to those suffering from cancer.
Applications for the event, which starts at midday on October 17, remain open.
