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.
Southern Road Relays – Sunday 24th September – Crystal Palace – website link
Women’s team = 4 x 4.5km, Men’s team = 6 x 6km
Please sign up by MONDAY 4th SEPTEMBER if interested so that we can meet entry deadline
London Cross Country Championships – Saturday 18th November – Parliament Hill Fields, Hampstead Heath – website link
Please sign up by WEDNESDAY 25th OCTOBER if interested so that we can meet entry deadline
All runners must be first claim members and registered with England Athletics.
Relay season continues at a pace and with the successful completion of our own event we now look forwards to the Nonsuch Relays on 5th July.

The new relay course will be run over a 1.6 mile route around the grounds of Imber Court and along the river Ember. The course is flat but with mixed terrain including grass, gravel paths and some tarmac. It is uneven in places but not difficult.
Located in Surrey, very near to Hampton Court, the Imber Court has some of the finest sports grounds in the United Kingdom. There is ample parking available and the clubhouse has excellent facilities and a bar for a post run drink and chat.
Teams will consist of 4 runners. There will be prizes for mens, ladies and mixed teams. Entry will cost £12 per team.
The event is open to local running clubs by invitation. If you would like more information for your running club, please get in touch at enquiries [ at ] 26point2.co [ dot ] uk.

Excited about relays after Green Belt? Did you get to run and want more? Did you miss out and now want a go yourself? Worry not, we are now taking sign ups for the River Relay 2017!
The River Relay will be held this year on 3rd September. The event is organised by the Stragglers. Full details are available at River Relays.
The River relay is a 26.2 mile relay from Virginia Water to the Hawker Centre. Teams consist of 5 runners each taking between 4.9 and 6.5 miles. Worry not, this is a flat course following the river so you won’t get the hills seen at Green Belt!
Teams are made up of at most 3 senior men and must contain at least 1 lady. Teams should be able to complete the course in under 4.5 hours.
The event is open to all club members. If you are worried that you are a slower runner, worry not, we will team you up with someone faster to get you home in time for the party!
Full details of the event are available online at: River Relays.
Sign up is available at: >>> River Relay Sign-up <<<. You can either enter a full team of five or request to be added into a team.
We currently have 4 teams entered into the Cotswolds 24 hour relay. Due to the popularity of the event, we are considering entering another team. This would bring our numbers to 40 runners plus family members. If you would like to be a part of a team. Please get in touch with Richard Kirk. You can do this through facebook or our contact page.
The event is a relay in teams of 8. Each runner must complete at least one 9km lap. The event is run over 24 hours so there is chance to run day time and night time laps.
The event is held over the weekend of 22nd and 23rd July in Cirencester Park. The park is on the edge of the Cirencester town centre however the campsite that we use is on the far side of the park from the town. Camping is available on Friday and Saturday nights.
If you wish to take part in a club team, it will cost £44 per runner. Family can join you on the campsite at a cost of £20 for adults and £5 for children.
This is a great social event with opportunity for as much running as you want plus time to socialise with other club members. If you want to know more about the event, please let us know and we will get a member who has run before to tell you all about it.
