Relay events are a great opportunity to experience running as part of a team and over a different distance than many other events. Races are comprised of 3-6 person teams, running around 2 miles per leg before handing over to the next team member. Individual and team times are recorded.
Relays are open to all club members from groups 1-4 and every runner who participates can make a huge contribution to their team.
Events vary in terms of being single/mixed sex teams, with different numbers of runners per team, distance and terrain with some on road and others cross country.
The cost of entry is covered by Washington Running Club. Race details will be shared in advance of each event for members to express their interest. Teams will then be selected prior to each event to ensure we have enough runners for complete teams.
The next events are below. Further details on format and distance will be shared when confirmed by the race organisers.
