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.
