Green Belt Relay – 18th / 19th May 2019
We are now taking names for entrants into this year’s Green Belt Relay. If you are interested in joining one of our teams, please sign up using the google form below:
The Green Belt Relay is a team running relay around London. The course is a 220 mile loop around the green spaces surrounding London. The course roughly follows the M25. You can find out more about the event in their website: http://www.greenbeltrelay.org.uk/
Our runners must run on both Saturday and Sunday. All members are welcome to enter the event however please keep in mind that you will be expected to run an average of 20 miles across the two days (some do less, some do more). There are cut-offs on each stage however our runners have missed these in the past. You will need to be happy to navigate the course yourself using a paper map that all competitors must carry.
We are looking for 22 runners however there are often drop-outs near the day so please add yourselves to the reserve list if we already have 22 runners signed up.
To allow us to start early on the Sunday (first leg at 8am) we encourage members to stay in a Premier Inn in Essex. There is a fixed cost for members staying out (to be announced but it is usually around £30).
If you want to know more about the event. Please ask around the club from people who have run before. The best way to learn about this is from previous runner experience.
