The Derwent River Relays & Fun Run

Derwent River Relays 2021

What a day!! Thank you to all runners that made our event such a success! Our makeshift format for 2021 was a little unconventional, but that and a few other measures made sure we could hold the event at all, we really didn’t want to cancel for a second year in a row. In the end, it was a fantastic day and we’ve had brilliant feedback (thank you for that!)
