The Traditional Elswick Good Friday Road Relays take place this year on 29th March, with the first race off at 10:30am.


The organisers have defaulted to the route used last year as there is still an issue of severe flooding on the original course.


This year the women's relay will be a separate race and the junior course has been extended slightly.


The only junior races this year are Under 13 Boys and Girls and Under 15 Boys and Girls. Everyone else 15 years old on the day of the race or older will be classed as a senior or vet.

All in all there will be 4 races on the day, as follows:

Race 4. 12 Noon. Senior and Vet Menís Relay race (approx. 2.2 miles)
A minimum age of 15 years old on the day of the race
Vets must be 35 years old or over on the day of the race
4 persons to count as a qualifying team
Awards to the 1st 3 Senior Teams and 1st 3 Vets Team
Awards to the fastest lap for A Senior, A Vet and An O/50.


The under 13 and Under 15 people need to be entered individually, where as those of you 15 and over will be named on the day in a team.

The club pays the entry fee for this one! So who is up for this little run?

I need to know by Monday 18th March.
