About this event
Join us for this fantastic event. A chance to run individually or with friends in a baton style challenge at the lovely Victoria Park.
Run in Teams of: 1, 2 or 4 - Baton relay race - Fully chip timed - Team prizes - Individual and Team Results - Medals - Trophies
We require a team name and team captain email address only.
Please note one pp entry = one team! See example below
Once your booking has been made you can decide on your team members, who is on your team is completely up to you and we don’t need to know their names. You can enter as many teams as you wish but please give each team a different name!
Team members can run in any order they wish, this is up to the team to decide on the day.
Each team member runs one 2.5km lap and then hands the race batton – equipped with race timing chip – to their team mate who then begins the next lap. Team members can run in any order they wish, so if you want to do two laps before handing over to your team mates that is absolutely fine.
Results include team placings for male, female and mixed teams. Enter as many teams as you like. Each team has to have a unique team name, for example: Fix Events Team 1, Fix Events Team 2.
Results also include individual placings for the fastest individual laps. These results will be listed the Team name and Lap number, for example: 1st - Fix Events Team Lap 1, 2nd - Fix Events Team Lap 2, 3rd - Fix Events Team Lap 3, so make sure you remember who did which lap!
