Ridgeway Relay The 2015 Ridgeway Relay takes place on Sunday 5th July, and Richard D will be Compton Harriers Team Manager again. Richard says: “I hope we will be able to give at least as good a showing in 2015 as we did last year. Perhaps we could even enter two teams as we did in 2010! We have the reputation of being the best supported team (by a long way!) on the day, so everyone who runs will be sure to find it a rewarding experience. At this point in time I would just like an indication of those who would definitely like to run, those who are interested, and those who are definitely not interested or are not able to make the date, to get an idea of numbers. Please note that any positive response will not be taken as a firm commitment by you at this stage, as injuries, personal circumstances etc can make even the best intentioned plans be subject to change”.
