Furzton Relay

The perennial club favourite is back, bigger and better than ever. Once again, we’ll be opening the event to all comers so come and pit yourself against teams from other local clubs, and again we will be encouraging juniors to join in too*.

As always, the relay is both a competitive event and an opportunity to team up with some running buddies and enjoy a Summer’s day on the banks of Furzton Lake. It’s all about the fun, so come down with your family and friends, run, relax and enjoy the great British Summer!

Entry

To register, think of a team name and select 3 running buddies.

We require one person to enter the team of 4 then completing the booking form for each team member. One payment will then be required for the total sum of £40 per Team (£10 each) including mixed junior and senior runners or, £20 per junior team (all 4 must be under 18 years of age).

If you are not a member of Redway Runners you’ll still need to create an account with the payment site, but this is free – you don’t need to join the club.

* Note that minimum age (defined as the participant’s age on the day of the race) is 12 for juniors.

Any team with even one member over 17 will be classified as an adult team and therefore ineligible for the fastest juniors’ team category.
