The Midland Men’s 12 stage and Ladies 6 stage road relays are nearly upon us and will be on Saturday 31st March.
The Men’s race will consist of 12 individual relay legs per team with each team running 4 long and 8 short relay ‘legs’ (Approximately 5.5 miles and 3 miles respectively).
The Ladies event will consist of 6 individual relay legs per team, with each runner completing around 3 miles.
With spring just around the corner, this is a fantastic event which takes place at Sutton Park near Stton Coldfield, and I would urge you all to participate so we can get as many BvH teams out as possible.
The Club will pay for the entry of all individuals and the event will make a refreshing change from the Parkrun so all you need to do is let the team captain’s know and turn up and run……..simple!
Please confirm your place with BvH team capatains, Gareth Cadd and Rachel Ward.
Rachel Ward adds: Plea to all ladies!
It is that time of year again when you know spring is on the way, and the road relays loom around the corner…
As usual the relays are taking place at Sutton Park, starting at 12.00 and the ladies are racing in teams of 6. Each runner will complete a leg of 3 miles each.
For those of you that are new to the club, or haven’t joined us in the relays before, now is your chance! It’s a fantastic day out, great course, great atmosphere and of course, there is always the promise of cake at the finish!
Don’t worry if your thinking ‘but I’m not fast enough’, the relays is for everyone, no matter your age or pace!
An opportunity to test your speed, as well as gain new friends, the ladies team is fantastic to be a part of.
You must be a paid up BVH member (see Linda Howell if your not- a gentle reminder that subs are soon due if you are!), wear a club vest (see Rachel P if you need one) and let me know by email if you want to run. I need to know by Friday 9th March if you are interested – the club pay for your entry. firstname.lastname@example.org
The ladies team has gone from strength to strength over the last few years, and I want to thank everyone that has been a part of that, you have made the role of team captain very easy and incredibly enjoyable! I am stepping down as team captain as of April, so if anyone would like to take over please let me know!!!
