Action File

Compton Annual Relay Sue The Relay will take place on the evening of Thursday 11th June starting at 5:30 pm, and there will be no ‘normal’ Club run scheduled for that day. Teams of four run around a lap which includes both road and tracks (each stage 1.6 miles, or 2530 metres) - the same route that we use for our summer Handicap Races, but starting and finishing in the cricket field. I currently have interest from 15 teams. The handicapped start system will be based on the predicted total team time (as estimated from previous performances where known, or guesstimated performances) which should make for a close race again, with all teams having a similar chance of winning. If anyone does not wish to run, but is available to help, some volunteer marshals would be much appreciated. There will be a Pickled Pig bar token for all competitors and helpers. The bar will be open and the barbecue burning – spectators are welcome.
