Cotswold Relays

The Cotswold Way Relay 2017 will be taking place towards the end of June; an exact date is to be confirmed in due course. If you are interested in taking part, please email 

Please remember that in order to participate you must be a fully paid up club member for 2017.

The Cotswold Way Relay is a 10 back-to-back races, starting each stage with a mass start at the expected arrival time of the 1st runner from the previous stage. Running from Chipping Campden in the early morning, through to the arrival at Bath Abbey in the early evening, using the waymarked route of the Cotswold Way as the route, the relay is over 90% off-road, taking in many hills, woodlands, fields and tracks, all offering spectacular views of the countryside around (if ever a runner looked up from the path to take it in!). The route is split up into 10 varied stages, varying in ascent and length, to offer a differing flavour for each runner in the team. There are no marshalls on the route, so route finding is all part of the spirit of the event. Many runners do a recce of their stage before the event, others fall in behind someone else. Most runners find that doing a recce through the beautiful Cotswolds in the company of other runners is all part of the great pleasure. You will certainly observe more of the views during the recce than in the race.
