Imber Court Relays
Start Date: 20 Jun 2017 19:30
End Date: 20 Jun 2017 21:00
Venue: Imber Court Police Sports Ground
Our fellow runners at 26.2 RRC have hosted a fun annual summer relay for local clubs for a number of years and the Stragglers have regularly entered teams. These were held in Horton Park up to 2015 and then sadly Epsom & Ewell council refused permission to hold any more such events, despite support for this from local runners and clubs. The event was attended by, and appropriate to, all standards of runners as it has a comfortable distance and a very friendly feel. In past years the Stragglers have entered ladies, mens, mixed and vets teams; everyone has always had a great time.
Not to be put off, 26.2 are relaunching the relays - same tried and tested format with a new location of : Metropolitan Police Sports & Social Club, Imber Court, Ember Lane, East Molesey, KT8 0BT (see https://goo.gl/maps/2jztVAH5exJ2).
Course: 1.6 miles per person
The course it self will begin in the main field just behind the main entrance and bar area, it will cover a lap of the main field then head out over a narrow(ish) bridge, round the rugby fields before taking in a lovely out and back stretch along the River Mole giving runners the opportunity to encourage their follow club mate on as they go. The route then heads back into the rugby field area and alongside the archery field (don't worry they won't be looking for moving targets) back over the bridge to the main field and back to the start finish area. It is a mixture of grass, tarmac and gravel tracks and extremely flat.
4 runners per team. Team declarations close at 7:20pm . Categories of mixed, men, women, vets etc.
Use of the bar and patio area afterwards to refresh yourselves prior to prize giving.
Entry fees (£12 per team) will be covered by the club. If you would like to run contact Jon Parry.
