Race Date: Sunday 9th July 2023
The premise of the Dronfield relays is an all inclusive fun day out running. Just under 15 miles split up into 3 legs with all teams handicapped according to ability. Each team has its own starting time and it’s simply first team to finish wins. We had Totley AC, Dronfield RC, UHTG, Marathon Bus and Striders all taking part and competing for the in demand myracekit £20 vouchers, presented to each member of the winning team. Striders also made up the majority of the Marathon Bus and UHTG teams.
We also had a good number of runners who decided that just under 5 miles wasn’t worth getting out of bed for so decided to run the whole circuit of the Dronfield Way.
Well done to all teams and solo runners. The winning team was the UHTG’s Crazy Coconuts in 2.04.37, handicapped time of 2.21.29. The fastest team was the Marathon Bus in 1.52.55 but they finished 4th with a handicapped time of 2.30.19.
We must also say a huge thanks to the Dronfield Way relay organising team for all the superb organisation and especially the Pimms and Shortbread at the end of each leg. Thanks also to the volunteers for making the event work so smoothly.
