We are having a 24 hour continuous relay to celebrate our 35th Anniversary Celebrations, starting at midday on Saturday August 19th and continuing through until midday on Sunday 20th August.
The venue for the relay is Market Bosworth Rugby Club, Cadeby Lane, Market Bosworth CV13 0BA. Facilities at the venue include the use of the club house (including kitchen and showers) and the plan is to have a BBQ or two on the go for cooking food.
Anyone that would like to camp overnight at the Rugby Club can do so for just £10 per tent (payable on the day).
The plan is to have at least one runner (ideally two or more) running at all times for the full 24 hours. We will also aim to have a shift co-ordinator on hand at all times to make sure the next runners are ready.
For the relay routes, there are a few options:
- We have mapped out a 5 mile route that goes through Bosworth Country Park to Sutton Cheney and then back into Bosworth via the gated road – for those on Strava this route will be uploaded prior to the event.
- A shorter route, approximately 2-3 miles in length, will be planned that will go around the Country Park.
- A very short route will also be available that just goes around the rugby field and will be suitable for anyone running with young children.
If you intend to take part, we need to know who is going to run, when they intend to run, how many laps they think would like to do, and whether they intend to camp overnight.
