Details:

The Northern Road Relays is one of the most prestigious running events in the road calendar, and is an excellent event at which to kick-start your spring season of road running. It also acts as a qualifier for the National Road Relays, which usually take place a fortnight later.

The event is open to all seniors aged 17 or over on 1st September 2021. The men’s team(s) consists of 12 runners and the women’s 6, with each runner completing either a long leg (8km - four for men, two for women) or a short leg (4km - eight for men, four for women). Some of the best athletes from the North will be competing which ensures a high standard of competition for all athletes involved, although the standard across the field varies and anyone is welcome to run.

If you are able to run this year: WE NEED YOU! Please contact Helen Haigh (women) or Damian McQueen (men) to let us know of your availability. For further information on the event, please prefer to the relevant prospectus below.

As with all team events it is important that if you say you can run then you do keep that date available. Teams will be picked from those that are available and reserves notified. Reserves often end up being needed due to injuries or illness of original team members so be prepared to run right up to the day of the even;, you may get a frantic phone call due to a last minute drop out!
