ENGLAND ATHLETICS SOUTH WEST INTER-CLUB ROAD RELAYS – SATURDAY 8TH APRIL 2017

posted in: News | 0

The SW Regional Inter-Club Road Relays will be held at Exeter Racecourse, Devon on Saturday 8th April.

The races will be held over a course of approximately 2 miles, using the tarmac road around the inside edge of the racecourse.

In line with England Athletics relays in other regions, there will be a 4-stage event for Women and Juniors and a 6-stage event for Men. The former will be run as two separate competitions (i.e. a Women’s race and a Juniors’ race) alongside one another.

Teams will compete in the following age categories:-

Women (Teams of 4) : Open, FV35 and FV45   Juniors  (Teams of 4) : Open (min age 11, max age 17), Under 15 and Under 17 Men      (Teams of 6) : Open, MV40 and MV50

Clubs should register teams (with categories) in advance but will not be required to declare the names of their runners until race day.

There will be a race limit of 100 teams in the 4-stage event, and 100 teams in the 6-stage event.

Entries for all races will be restricted to runners currently registered with England Athletics and to teams from clubs based in the South West (i.e. Avon, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire).

Southwest clubs which enter teams in other regional relays (e.g. Midlands, South of England) will also be eligible to enter teams in this event.

Further information to follow in due course.
