Relay Rules

These inter club relays are a fun social competition - but with all events of this nature we need a few rules to give it some structure.  The following rules must be adhered to, failure to do so could lead to disqualification.

The Rules

  1. Any runner can run in a team in their own age category or a team in a lower age category but NOT for a team in an older category.  This doesn't include the junior categories, only juniors can run in them - A junior runner can stay as a junior for all races in the season if they were under 17 on the date of the first race of the season.
  2. Men will run in Men's teams and Women will run in Ladie's teams.  There is a Mixed team for Juniors and the Over 55s can consist of any 3 runners of any gender.
  3. Each team must be made up of 4 (for Men - Sen, Vets and V50) or 3 (all other categories) distinct runners - no runner should run more than one leg in a single team.
  4. Each team is allocated runner numbers at the start of the year - all runners must wear the correct numbers for their team category - failure to do so could result in disqualification.
  5. Headphones must NOT be worn whilst running.  This is for runner and marshal safety.
