After an absence last year Green Belt Relay is back and we have entered two teams to take part this year. For those who have not taken part before or maybe never heard of it, Green Belt Relay is a 22 stage team event over 2 days of the weekend of 17th & 18th May. In teams of 11 we will be running in relay around the green spaces of the M25, starting at Hampton Court and finishing the next day at the Hawker Centre in Kingston covering a distance of 220 miles.
For those wishing to take part is it essential that you are able to run on both days and to be as flexible as possible as to what legs you are able to run. We will do our best to get the logistics to suit everyone where possible but cannot guarantee that we will be able to allocate you a particular leg.
If you wish to take part it will be on a first come, first served basis so please ensure you post on the forums -> here <- and let us know ASAP so you don’t miss out, if anyone posts or lets me know they are interested once the teams are full they will be placed on a reserve list in case of drop outs. Also if you are able to spend the night out somewhere in Essex (Venue to be confirmed) let us know as it will make life easier to plan the logistics. Those able to stay over night will be allocated the later and earlier legs on Saturday and Sunday respectively as travelling out to run these legs can be difficult. It akso makes for a great evening and makes getting to and from your legs less stressful if you have the promise of a beer or two after you have run!
The entry fee per person will only be £20 as the club is subsidising this event.
