This weekend we are sending out 2 teams of 11 runners to complete a 220 mile lap of London as part of the Green Belt Relay.
Spectators are welcome at any point on the relay so if you fancy a day out, why not come and support. We will all be gathering at the end of the relay for a celebratory BBQ at the Hawker Centre from 5.30pm on Sunday. Everyone is welcome to come along and join whether you ran, supported or stayed home.
Our runners are shown below. You can see the full content in a Google sheet.

The relays will be held on Tuesday 26th June and will start at 7pm.
Teams will consist of four runners and each will complete the 1.6 mile course over flat but varied terrain before handing over to their team mates. There will be prizes for the fastest teams in a variety of categories
26.2 RRC will be entering teams but we also need volunteers to manage the start, the relay hand over, finish area and of course marshals on the course itself

A date for your diary – This year we will once again be hosting a team relay at Imber Court, Molesey
The event will take place on the evening of Tuesday 26th June and will see local clubs invited to race 1.6 miles around Imber Court. Each team of 4 runners will compete in various categories. Last year the event was very well received by the other clubs and is now established as a replacement for the Horton Park event.
26.2 RRC will be entering teams but we will also need marshals and helpers for various roles before the event is held and on the evening itself.
The race begins at 7pm and follows a flat all terrain course around Imber Court and along the River Mole.
Imber Court will be putting on a BBQ for the post run social event and there is the cheap club bar available as well
More details to follow nearer the time.
So a number of people have been asking if we are planning to attend Cotswold 24 again this year which isn’t looking likely, however a new event, closer to home and organised by the same events company is starting this year in Henley on Thames. So with that in mind we thought we would gauge interest in those wishing to take part this year before to commit to entering teams. You can find full details of the event on their website -> here <- so please take a look.
However in brief the details are as follows:
- To be held on Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th June
- Campsite opens at 5pm on Friday 15th June
- Entry for a team of 8 runners is £400 – £50 per head assuming we fill the teams £67 per head Maximum based on 6 runners
- Camping for Non Runners is £20 per person and kids camp for free
However to reduce costs the organisers are offering a free team entry for any organisation or club that can man a marshal point for the entire 24 hour period. That would mean if we entered 3 teams each runner would need to spend an hour of the weekend on point throughout the race. If we did this it would reduce the cost of entering by third to around £33 per head based on having 3 teams of 8 and filling all team spaces, further reducing costs if we entered a fourth team and so on.
So for now to gauge interest before decide if we are going to enter teams please can you register your interest using the sign-up form at the link below and please ensure you let us know if you would be willing to help man the marshal point if we took that option.

A couple of top level events organised by SEAA are on the horizon this Autumn. Both events are highly competitive and will draw a top quality field from around the region. I suggest only the “faster” runners to consider signing up to give the club the best chance to represent ourselves at this level. The plan is to enter one or two male and female teams for both events, subject to interest.
