Two events we are targeting for the club vets / masters come (a bit close together) in May.

The British Masters Road Relay Championships will be held at Sutton Park, Birmingham on Saturday 20th May.  

This event involves age group teams running in 3 mile road relay stages.

There are trophies and medals for the first three teams in each age group and the three fastest runners in each Championship.

Ladies races start at 10.30 and the last men’s race is at 2.00 p.m.

The club will enter the teams and pay entry fees. We will plan transport to suit runners.

We will be contacting runners to invite them to run but please volunteer if you would like to race.
