Registration is closed

A special KGV training session offering some real race pace spice on a Tuesday evening and a bit of festive fun....silly hats and tinsel etc are required.  NB this is an event for adults from all training groups but please no juniors as they have an easy week in their programme.

As last year the WADAC Xmas relays will be on an approx 1km loop around the KGV fields and including the hill at the corner!

6.45  meet on KGV for warm up
7pm  briefings and announcements 
7.15  race starts

Please be there early enough to meet up with your team mates sort out your tactics and do your own warm-up in time for your leg start.

Each runner must complete 3k in whatever format eg 3x1K, 1k+2k or full 3k in one go.
Teams will be based on estimated 5k/xc pace and teams are free to determine their own running order and tactics and run different lap sequences for best effect.

To facilitate team selections please register for this event using this registration facility and do provide an estimate of your likely 5k race time on a level road or parkrun course. 

We will try and balance the teams and it is always much more fun if the teams are as even as possible so please no false modesty. 

The event will be a simple box to box relay without batons. 

KGV is not the hilliest of courses but it will be real racing, XC in nature and spikes friendly.  Much of the course will be in darkness following a trail of lit cones so you may wish to bring a headtorch to help with sighting your footing.  The start/finish area will be lit (with borrowed light from next door) and this lit area provides a spectator zone which the athletes will pass through every lap.  

This year it's a real first across the line team relay race with no DDD to bear witness so individual times and bragging rights are properly consigned to the bar!

Any questions please just ask Nick or Kate Green
