Before the race starts, the player is able to hold B Button to charge up and get a short boost. When the word "Go" appears on screen, the player must swing down the Wii remote to start the event.

The player is also able to perform a special dash at any point in the event to give their character a short speed boost by pressing A Button. All four team members can do this in a single race. When the player approaches another player, the one receiving the baton will start running. During their start, the baton is passed from one player to the other. However, if the player does not swing the Wii Remote down, it is passed automatically, but with a speed drop.
