2017 Race Date: Sunday 16th July, 10:30am, George & Dragon pub, Holmesfield
** Call for runners is now closed and teams are being compiled **
The Dronfield relay is an annual team event for Striders and invited guests and always a great day in the Striders calendar.
Each team is made up of 6 runners with a pair running together on each of the 3 legs of the course.
The race covers a total of around 15 miles through the countryside around Dronfield and Coal Aston with each leg being approximately 5 miles long.
A route map is available to help runners on their course reccies: route map in PDF format (6MB)
It is a low key event with a focus on enjoying the run and socialising afterwards rather than cut and thrust competition.
All Striders teams are pre-mixed by ability and all non-Striders teams are time-handicapped so everyone has a decent chance of victory.
The relay starts at Holmesfield at 10:30 opposite the George and Dragon pub. It finishes back where it started outside the George and Dragon pub at about 12:30.
There is a buffet in the Victoria Inn pub, Dronfield, afterwards, paid for by the club.
Recent years have seen our biggest ever fields of teams and great days of Striders racing and social. We’re looking forward to an equally enjoyable event this year!
