Cotswold Relay 2016

Some  information about the Cotswold Relay for anyone interested in this years event.
It takes place on the last Saturday in June.
It's a 100 mile staged relay starting at Chipping Camden and follows the Cotswold Way National Trail finishing at Bath Abbey.Mainly off road,lots of hills,wonderful scenery and fantastic views! There are no marshalls but you follow the runner in front or look out for the cotswold way markers! 10 runners in each team.The 10 stages start at set times and the finish lines of each stage are timed by race officials.
Paul Bouston and Jan Edwards will be coordinating the Wye Valley entries..we are confident we will have enough interest to enter 3 teams mens ladies and mixed . There is a lot of organisation involved and we all need to make transport arrangements to get to start points and pick up others at their finish points! Its a great help if there are some extra supporters to help with transport and its great to follow the race if you get the chance before or after completing your stage .There is an option for a night out in Bath and stopover in the city centre..highly recommended! 
Many runners who have competed before have preferences for their stages and we try to give them priority when choosing stages.We will be having meetings to discuss and then arrange teams and allocate runners to stages.Then the transport arrangements can begin!
Some new runners to the event may want to do a reccie of their stage before the event.
More details are on the Cotwold Way Relay site here. Team Bath AC organise the event.
Its a brilliant day.. Wye Valley have had many years Cotswold relay experience and this year will be another great team event.
