  2. There will be 2 teams – Team Elf and Team Reindeer, we’ll assign you to a team using day of birth or initials of your name etc to give us two nicely balanced teams.
  3. To give you some choice and flexibility on when you run, we’re dividing the 24 days into 4 periods. We’ll ask you to run in a particular one of those 4 periods and submit your distance by the end of your period. The periods are: Tuesday 1 December to Sunday 6 December. Monday 7 December to Sunday 13 December. Monday 14 December to Sunday 20 December. Monday 21 December to Thursday 24 December. If you can’t run in your allocated period, please try and arrange a swap with another member of your team or if this fails contact the club. Latecomers can be added to the list during the event.
  4. Each runner runs for 24 continuous minutes and records the distance covered - via Strava, GPS or “old school” (OS map and a piece of cotton).
  5. Each runner MUST be festive themed in some way. This could be a festive baton, fancy dress, be photographed during the run at a Christmasy location etc.
  6. Once a runner completes their run, they must post pictures of themselves with their festive theme plus the distance covered on our Facebook page or send an email to events@ashbournerunningclub.org.uk and we will publish it on Facebook for you.
  7. The team that has covered the most distance at the end of the challenge wins.
  8. Don’t forget it’s just a bit of fun, but of course there will always be those who will make it competitive.....
  9. And finally, seriously and most importantly, please observe the social distancing rules and guidelines in place at the time of your run.

Can we help local people in need?

While we’re enjoying our relay we’d like to extend the Christmas spirit to local people in need by supporting our food bank. The Ashbourne Food Bank ensures local residents who are struggling with low income and debt have food in times of need. As well as having its donation points for goods in local shops, the food bank also needs financial contributions to buy specific items and this is where we’d like to help. If you are able to help, whether or not you’re taking part in the relay the easiest way is to make a direct bank payment to our normal Ashbourne Running Club Bank Account, 30-90-25, 00303499 marking the reference as “Food Bank”. We will then transfer all the money collected to the food bank and let members know how we did. All donation details will of course be treated in confidence. Thank you for your support.

Relay Rules

  1. Entries are now full.
  2. There will be 2 teams - Odds and Evens. Your birthday dictates which team you are in. For example, if your birthday is the 16th of the month, you are an “Even”.
  3. The list above shows the date we’d like you to do your run. One runner from each of the two teams will run each day. You are not expected to run together or on the same route or at the same time or anything complicated like that. If you can’t run on your allocated day, first please arrange a swap with another member of your team or if this fails post a message on the Facebook group. Latecomers can be added to the list during the event.
  4. Each runner runs for 19 minutes and records the distance covered - via Strava, GPS or “old skool” (OS map and a piece of cotton).
  5. Each runner MUST carry a baton for the duration of their run or their distance will be disallowed. The sillier, the better. There will be a prize for the “best” baton. Real relay batons are not allowed as they are not funny.
  6. Once a runner completes their run, they must post pictures of themselves and their baton on the Facebook page plus the distance covered.
  7. The team that has covered the most ground at the end of the challenge wins the much-coveted Covid-19 trophy.
  8. It is a competition, but no one should care too much who wins.
  9. Expect the rules to change mid-relay and if one team gets too far ahead the transfer window may be opened.
  10. And finally, seriously and most importantly, please observe the social distancing rules and guidelines in place at the time of your run.
