Tasks can be partitioned and completed in any order the team chooses, but only one partner may be working at a time – with the exception of the run.

Teams may need to exercise some strategy to ensure they are not in need of an erg with nothing left to do if none are available. The first team to the erg takes priority (but no throwing elbows).
