Dronfield Relay

2022 Race Date: Sunday 10th July 10:30am

Location: George & Dragon pub, Holmesfield

This year’s event will form part of the club’s 40th anniversary events, along with the Steel City Mile and Striders 10k.

Entries for the race will open in spring 2022.

We will then create Striders teams of mixed time ability to create an evenly balanced, fun-packed race.

As in previous years, non-Striders teams of six runners are warmly welcomed to join us for this great day of relaxed racing and social. Non-Striders teams are asked to make a nominal £10 entry fee per team.

The call for runners will close a few weeks before the race to allow teams to be finalised.


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.

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!
