Runners needed for Green Belt Relay

I'm still looking for two runners for this weekend. We have an incomplete team which is a shame for everyone else running on that team so if you fancy being involved in what will surely be a great Serpie weekend, please sign up here.

What is GBR?

'GBR' is a two day,  22 stage, relay race around London's Greenbelt countryside and surrounding towns, running on a mixture of paths, trails and roads. The route is divided into 22 sections (between 6.0 and 13.3 miles), and teams consist of 11 runners. Everyone runs twice, once on each day of the race. We all travel around the course in a few minibuses, supporting other runners as we go. On Saturday night we'll stay at a hotel near the half-way point. You need to be available for the whole weekend.

More information about the race on

Entry is open to all Serpies but please remember that you must be capable of running around 20 miles in total, across two days at 10min/mile pace or faster.

The fee payable now (£30) is non-refundable and includes the cost of transport and the evening buffet meal on Saturday. Other expenses, including the cost of hotel on Saturday (£31 B&B per person sharing a twin room) need to be paid for on the day.
