There are two well worn routes. The idea is that between successive legs there is a short jog to the next handover point. Each runner completes three legs. There is no reason why different routes should not be used if the organiser wants to measure them out.
Where the spread of abilities is even, this will give an accurate result on a "first past the post" basis. However, if the fast and slow runners show a significantly different distribution then the sum of the handicaps should be used to calculate the results.
