Dales Way Relay 2106 - Sat 9th April

Postby mudsplasher » Fri Feb 05, 2016 3:44 pm

The DWR will take place on Sat 9th April. This is a club social event and involves as many people as possible from the club running the Dales Way in relay starting at Bowness and finishing in Ilkley (usually in the Taps). Legs vary in length from about 9 miles to 4 miles and people can run one or as many legs as they like with each leg being run at the pace of the slowest runner in the group. A sign up sheet and further details will follow but please put the date in your diaries. This year I will also be collecting a donation of £1-2 per runner in aid of the Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue (they cover most of the Dales Way although hopefully we won't be needing them) as I know they have various projects on the go and really appreciated our donation at Christmas.
I hope as many people as possible will join us (there is no clash with the 6 nations this year !!).

I will be down on a Tuesday night towards the end of the month with a board for people to sign up for the DWR. Please think about which leg(s) you would like to run. In particular, we need some faster runners (that know the route) to get the relay off to a good start on the first 2-3 legs.

Great stuff. Keep the offers of running coming in. I'll be down on Tuesday evenings if anyone would like any more information or contact me via this site.

Hi Val,

Would it be OK to decide at the last minute (sorry!). I am running the Paris Marathon the week before so I might not be up to much, but perhaps I'll feel like joining in on one of the shorter legs. Really enjoyed the event last year. Petra.

Hi Val,
Which legs are currently available? I just need to re-check dates but as i'm hoping to run the whole of the DW later this year I would be interested in doing 2 or 3 consecutive legs as a training run.

All the best,

Adrian
