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!

All participants will get a commemorative gift.

Entry

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

Then click through on the relevant button at the top of the right hand column:

  • Green if you’re a Redway Runners club member
  • Blue if you’re a guest – you’ll still need to create an account with us, but this is free – you don’t need to join the club.

We require one entry per team of 4 and one payment of £40. Don’t worry if you don’t have all the members of your team signed up – just email us the details (first name, last name, gender and date of birth for each team member) when you have them and we will add them for you.

Useful info

* 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.

You can of course compete in the adult team categories with up to 3 juniors in the team.

If you have any questions about the event, feel free to contact the team via email.
