The 2023 Green Belt Relay is back on th 13th and 14th May for it's 25th edition.
The Green Belt Relay is a not-for-profit annual running relay organised by The Stragglers running club, and all surplus funds from the race are donated to charity (most recently the Marie Curie charity). The race is a 22-stage running relay 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 nearby Bushy Park Sports Centre on Sunday at about 6pm. It is organised by The Stragglers running club, has been going since 1995, and involves around 50 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.
