There are two Relay events taking place in the coming weeks where the club should be involved.
Taking place next Thursday evening, August 29th at 6.30pm, for the second consecutive year will be the Malt Shovel Relays at Oakerthorpe Road Wirksworth. Teams will consist of three runners running a leg of two miles of both road and off-road running. Cost of this will be £9 per team before the day.
This is another event organised by David Denton and considering the support David gives the club, it would be good if we could raise some teams for the Relays.
Last year we managed to put out three teams and I personally enjoyed the route which made a welcome change from training. So if you are free next Thursday drop me an email or see me next Tuesday and we will sort the teams out.
Saucony Midland Road Relays
These Relays will be taking place at Sutton Park, Sutton Coldfield on Satuday September 21st.
The Men’s Relays are six runners per team running a leg of 5.85k while the ladies teams consist of four runners running 4.32k.
These Relays are open to first claim runners and there is no cost to fully paid up members.
Sutton Park is a large area of parkland with a good play area for those who have younger family members. The park is just forty minutes from Belper and anyone without transport would be able to share a lift.
The closing date for entries is Friday September 6th, so if you wish to run, drop me an email or see me on Tuesday.
