The Forth Spring Round Harborough Relay

Start time: TBA on 14th April 2019.

The entry is free but eligible to club members only.

It consists of 6 stages over an overall distance of just under 20 miles. Five of the stages are between 2 and 3 miles and one stage of about 6 miles, with the event starting and finishing in Lubenham TBA.

The route is roughly circular around Market Harborough and mainly follows the Welland Valley. The stages are multi-terrain and need to be checked beforehand by participants as there will be very limited course marking or marshalling. Each team will consist of 6 runners and will be seeded so we have fairly evenly matched teams to give everyone a chance to get into the race. There will be a captain for each team who will be responsible for making sure everyone in their team knows where they are going.

Whilst this is a competitive event, the emphasis is fun, and safety is utmost before any result. It is recommended that you carry a mobile phone with you in case of emergency. Maps with directions and details of changeovers will be provided.

The results of the race and presentation will be at the Coach and Horses, Lubenham TBA after the race.

We will be looking forward to seeing you on the day and hoping for a good days sport.
