Lacock Relays 2024

Where: nr The Red Lion, Lacock Village, Wiltshire

The Chippenham Harriers invite and welcome all runners to the beautiful village of Lacock in Wiltshire for our ever popular Lacock Relays.
 
The Lacock Relays is an open event for runners of all abilities regardless of club (or not!), our summer series of relay races return again in 2024, during the high summer months for a series of evening runs in May, June, July and the highly anticipated finale in August.

Each relay team consists of three runners with mixed predicted finish times, allocated as Slow, Medium or Fast. 
 
Teams are organised on the night, with NO prebooking required – turn up, pay and run. Prizes of a drink and crisps in The Red Lion goes to the fastest teams.

All you have to do is turn up with the £2 entry fee, be prepared to run (about) 2.6 miles around the beautiful Lacock Abbey, village and countryside, have a whale of time, cheer on your fellow runners & perhaps stay for some refreshment in the Red Lion afterwards.
