Furzton Relay

Redway Runners Furzton Relay is back! In reverse order, we will be running round the lake, running up a hill and running to the finish line. Once again on Saturday 13th July we'll be opening this event to all so come and put yourself against teams from other local clubs, please encourage your junior teams to join in too.

As always the relay is both a competitive event and an opportunity to team up with running friends and enjoy the summer sunshine. There will be plenty of opportunities to soak up the British weather with a slice of cake, coffee, and even a few goodies for all finishers.
