The Green Belt Relay is a 22-stage running relay race around 220 miles of the Green Belt around the outside of London over a single weekend. The course mainly follow footpaths, towpaths or minor roads.
The race takes place in May each year, starting at Hampton Court, Saturday 8.30am and ending in the Hawker Centre, Ham, Sunday at about 6pm.
It is organised by The Stragglers running club, has been going since 1995, and involves 40-45 teams. Runners form teams of 11 people, and each runner runs one stage each day.
Although the race is a relay, each stage starts at a fixed time. This allows each stage to be a competitive race in its own right, and also allows teams of all different standards to stay roughly together as they advance along the route.
The Stragglers enter a number of teams. If you are interested in taking part, please contact Simon Webb.
