Virtual Water Marathon Relay

Posted by Alan Mawdsley on 31 August 2020

Virtual Water Marathon Relay

As we’re unable to stage the River Relay this September, we’ve created this event as an alternative.


To be completed between Thursday 17 and Sunday 27 September


Teams of 5 to complete a total distance of 26.2 miles. Legs don’t need to be equal distance, so for example you could have four stages of 5 miles and one of 6.2. Choose your own route but it must at some point be next to a body of water. Ideally run your stages consecutively (but this is not essential) but do not use a baton.

For added competition we have invited teams from Ranelagh and 26.2 along with Stragglers.

Team categories:

Mixed, (at least 2 of each gender)
Vets Men (50+ years old)
Vets Women (50+)
Vets mixed (50+ years old, at least 2 of each gender)) 

Certificates emailed to the winning captains of each category and to the next to last team - “the Penultimates”.

How to enter:

Pre-entry is not required, results to be submitted via an online form on a team’s completion of the relay. Click HERE to submit your results by Sunday 27 September.

Please organise teams amongst yourselves. Group leaders (Little Feet, Thames Ditton, Thursday night etc) can help you if you’d like to run or need team members to join you. If you won't be seeing them but would like to run, please contact Phil Davies  by 18th September.

If you have any other questions about this event, please contact Phil Davies.
