Squeaky Bone Relay – Sunday 2 Nov – Information

We’ve managed to pull together an impressive 15 teams for the 2014 Squeaky Bone Relay on 2 November. In keeping with the tone of the event (runners carry a squeaking bone dog toy as the baton) our team names have been given a canine theme this year. The organisers take no responsibility for any insult or injury caused by team placements or team names.

The first named team member is the captain who is responsible for collecting the bone and the team’s race numbers on arriving at the registration area. The rules of the race demand that you run in the order submitted to the organisers (as below).

If you are unable to take part please could you let me know as soon as possible? If you can’t take part it would be appreciated if you could find somebody to take your place. We don’t have any reserves at the moment, but if there is anybody who did not enter that would like to be a reserve please let me know.

Enjoy!

Note if you need to drop out – you need to find a replacement or your team may need to be scratched (but do check with Kevin and/or Martin as they may know people available to run).

Team captains (Captains are shown) must collect each team pack from registration on the day and pass to their team.

Meet on the day at 9:30 on the field you will see the DLRR green drop leaf flags. At 9.45 we will aim to take a group photo

At the end of your leg you can stuff yourself full of tea and cake (small fees) as you cheer home the other runners, and after the presentations we will head over to the Robin Hood pub nearby to enjoy our efforts – we have warned them we are coming but it is a very small pub!!

Race Start 10am

The race will start promptly at 10am, there will be a race briefing at 9:45am just outside the registration area.

The route:

The course is 3.5 miles (approx.) and is all off road, so is suitable for trail shoes or spikes. The course at the moment is reasonably dry, so there shouldn’t be too much mud! The route will be clearly marked with marshals to cheer you on, please squeak your bone as you pass by!

We have plenty of parking available but would ask you to lift share where possible. Our marshals will advise you where you should park. Please don’t park on the road leading into Clifton Reynes as we don’t want to annoy the local residents.

There will be photographers out and about on the course, they have all volunteered their time at no cost. We will upload their pictures to our Squeaky Bone Facebook page for you to download free of charge. All we ask is that you ‘like’ our Fbook page!

Refreshments:

There will be teas/coffees/hot chocolates and homemade cakes available, all lovingly made by our club members!
