The Yorkshire Veterans Athletic Association Road Relay Championship 2009

England Athletics Race License no: 209-100027. Organiser Peter Shields.


Sunday 27th September 2009, 11.00am Start (looking for the 2010 event? Click Here )

Welcome from Ilkley Harriers

The Club is really pleased to be organising this event on behalf of YVAA, and we hope to make it a great day out for all the runners. The course is testing but rewarding, the scenery is terrific, and the welcome will be very warm.


The race is centred around the famous Ilkley Lido, (see www.ilkleylido.co.uk), and changeovers will take place within the grounds.

The route is 2.9 miles in length - 1 mile flat, 1 mile climb then a fast descent to the change-over. The route runs anticlockwise so all turns are left hand turns.


Entries must be made on the form published on the YVAA web site - use the direct link to the entry form here.

NB Entries arriving after 20th September cannot be accepted.


Team members' names will be registered on the day at Registration in the Lido grounds by each team leader. We plan to open Registration in the Cafe/Pavillion at 9.30am. Please allow plenty of time to register. You will need to bring sufficient safety pins for your race number (a new number - not your YVAA Grand Prix number) and for the YVAA age category number.

NB Age category numbers must be worn on the backs of runners. Not to do so would risk being dropped down the finish order or even disqualification by the race referee.

Teams and race distances


First three YVAA-eligible teams in each category, except for:


Fastest individual lap in each of the above team categories.
And, this year, first team in each category and second team in M40, M50 and F35.


There will be refreshments served from the Cafe/Pavillion at Ilkley Lido, by Ilkley Harriers.
