Tanis' Trail 2 Person Relay

Relay Distance: 4 laps of 1.7km

2020-08-30 at 11am

Peat Pit Woods, Higg Lane, Alderwasley, Derbyshire

This Relay, in its 2nd year, is in memory of Tanis Edwards, a long-time official at my events in the Midlands. ALL PROCEEDS are donated to the STROKE ASSOCIATION. Lat year, £350 was raised and the amount was doubled - £ for £ - by a local but international Company.

Two runners make up a team and each runner runs 2 laps, but not consecutively. Runner 1 run laps 1 & 3 and Runner 2 runs laps 2 & 4. Whilst Peat Pits Woods are used for some of my fell races, the lap is basically flat.

Tea/coffee and CAKES will be available on the day.

Race Fee: A minimum donation of £3 per runner payable on the day goes to the Stroke Association.
