Green Belt Relay - registration now open
After last year's cancellation, the Green Belt Relay, returns on the weekend of 17th & 18th May 2014.
'GBR' is a two day, multi-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, which is pretty tough but most people agree that this is one of best Serpie weekends away, as well as being an excellent 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.
Entry is open to all Serpies but please remember that you must be capable of running around 20 miles in total, perhaps a little further, across two days at 10min/mile pace or faster.
Serpentine have entered four teams again this year. We need drivers and navigators for each mini-bus so please tick the box(es) if you're able to help. You need to be at least 25 years old to be a driver for us.
Serpentine members who would like to be included on one of our teams should sign up here. 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.
Those who drive a minibus for us on the weekend will have their registration fee refunded in full as a gesture of thanks by the club.
