The first three Lacock relay events are relay races with three in each team. The final event is a handicap race based on individual times recorded in one of the preceding relay races. To compete in the handicap race you must have competed in at least one of the preceding relay races to set a qualifying time.
Teams are selected on the night by the organiser to the following format:
The aim is to have all the teams finishing in approximately the same time and for everyone to be running against people of comparable speed. It also means that anyone who turns up on the night has a chance of being in the winning team.
The course is 2.6 miles slightly undulating on mostly quiet country lanes. The emphasis is on participation and fun and no one should feel they are not quick enough to join in.
There is a small entry fee of £2. There will be prizes on the night of drinks/crisps vouchers redeemable at The Red Lion.
Please note that the minimum age to take part in each Lacock Relay is 14 years. Anyone aged between 14 and 17 years may take part only if they are registered by a parent or guardian on the night and have their permission to run. Adults do not need to run with their children, but must be present at registration. The route involves rural country roads and the race is not marshalled.
