What are acceleration zones, and how do you use them?

The exchange must occur within the 20 meter zones. A 10 meter acceleration zone may be used by the outgoing runner. This zone is used for the benefit of gaining speed only as the baton cannot be exchanged until the 20 meter zone has been reached. The method of exchange is a blind hand-off in the 4x100m relay.
Runners #1 and #3 run on the inside of the lane, while runners #2 and #4 position themselves on the outside of the lane. Runners #1 and #3 carry the baton around the curves in their right hands, while runners #2 and #4 carry the baton down the straight-a-way with their left hands.
