Round Norfolk Relay - 18th/19th September

Serpentine has one team entered for this 17 stage, 193 mile relay around Norfolk. If you'd like to take part, read on for more details.

Serpentine has entered a team for the Round Norfolk Relay which takes place over the weekend of the 18th and 19th of September. The course follows the county boundary over a distance of 193 miles, divided into 17 unequal stages. Uniquely, once started teams must carry a relay baton passing it from runner to runner continuing through the night until the finish at Kings Lynn is reached, with each runner being supported by a cyclist from their club.

I can't stress enough that this is not just an event for elite runners. If you want to take part there are stages for all abilities ranging in distance from 5 to 20 miles, with both on and off road sections. As it is a 24 hour relay there are of course stages though-out the night!
