Runners Needed – Christ’s Hospital Road Relays, 30th March

February13/ 2013

The Sussex Road Relay Champs are taking place at Christ’s Hospital on Saturday 30th March, starting from 11am. We have entered Steyning AC teams into this in the past and I’m happy to co-ordinate entries for this year. We need to enter in advance so I need names by the middle of March. If you haven’t done this before then you should give it a go. It is an event for teams, run by age category and historically we have entered around half a dozen teams each year. Teams are made up of three runners, except for the Senior men (6 runners) and Over 40 Men (4 runners). Each adult runner completes 1 large lap of just over 2 miles, under 15s each do 1 small lap (1 mile 200m approx).

There are lots of categories: Under 13 Boys/ Girls, Under 15 Boys/Girls, Senior Men/Women, Over 40 Men/Women, Over 50 Men/Women and Over 60 Men. There are also prizes for Under 17 Men/Women but there is no separate race as they run as part of the appropriate Senior race.

This is a chance for Steyning AC to get out in force and have a good day out. The course is flat and fast, there are always lots of supporters and a good atmosphere, you can buy hot drinks and snacks (or bring your own of course) and loads of Sussex Clubs take part.

Please let Joan know if you would like to be in a team – we don’t need only our fastest runners, we just need lots of people to have a go. It’s a great team event, you can wear your Club vest with pride, and might even end up with a medal. When you contact me, don’t forget to tell me what age you will be on 30th March so I can allocate you to the right category. By the way, I need Over 50 Ladies to make up my team………..
