This is one of two open events that Durham City Harriers hosts each year, the other being the Cathedral Relays in January. The Summer Relays is a cross country relays event that takes place each year on a weekday evening either before or after the August Bank Holiday. Each team is made up of three athletes who each run two laps of a fast, largely flat, grass course. There are races for Seniors, Veterans, Mixed Teams and Unattached Teams. A new junior relay event will be included in the schedule this year, giving 14-16 year olds a chance to take part.
The prospectus and details of prizes, age categories etc. can be downloaded here.
As usual, Birtley AC will cover the cost of this event for our participating athletes – there will be a sign up sheet on the noticeboard at the club, courtesy of Shannel, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you aren’t likely to be at club for a while.
