Welsh Castles Relays 2018

Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th June

The Welsh Castles is a twenty stage relay race from North Wales to Cardiff. Logistically a nightmare, it is a great chance to see lots of people run and have some fun on a weekend away. The winners are those with the lowest total running time.  Before you can contemplate that you need to get twenty runners to the right spot at the right time, also you really need to pick them up at the end.

In 2018 thanks to Steve Caxton Poole Runners enter a team. It was the first time for many years. It was both a huge success and a learning curve. All who run were talking about “next time”!

Welsh Castles Relays 2019

Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June

Steve Claxton is looking at the viability of entering a team in 2019. The event is over two days:  Saturday 8th  and Sunday 9th  of June An advance partly needs to travel up to North Wales on the Friday.  If interested please put the date in your dairy and PM Steve Claxton. You do need to run 10 miles at least in about 85mins to hit the strict cut off time for each of the twenty legs.   It’s a tough week-end but fun and great team building.
