2016 River Relays

Following on from the great turn out we had at Nonsuch Relays the other week it’s now time for everyone to start thinking about signing up for the River Relays on Sunday 4th September.

Starting in Windsor at the Boveney Church the relays take a scenic route from Windsor back to Kingston Hawker centre over 5 stages. Each stage is an average of 5.3 miles and the total distance covered by each team of 5 is 26.7 miles. The event is a self navigation event very similar to Green Belt Relay so you need to run with a map and instructions but the route is fairly straightforward and people rarely get lost.

So if you are interested in taking part sign up using the new sign up sheet -> here <- to either enter yourself only or a team if you have one. If you are entering a team please read the team rules on the sign up page to ensure you conform with the race rules in terms of team compostion.

Details of each stage is shown below and as always if you have any questions post up in the forum link which can be found -> here <-
