Event Description

The Wacky Relays

Sunday 13th August 2023 starting 11.15am 

At Sedgley Park Rugby Club and Philips Park, Whitefield, M45 7DZ

Organised by Prestwich Athletic Club

Raising money for The Running Charity, Manchester which helps young people experiencing or at risk of homelessness to reach their full potential through running.

We are back for a second year of The Wacky Relays in the lovely Philps Park in Whitefield. Come and run for fun in a beautiful landscape but also for the challenge of some rolling hills. A surprise round every corner - maybe you can catch the pigeon this year?

The Wacky Relays involves teams of four runners; each runner completes one loop of the 1.3 mile/2 km circuit circuit before heading back to Sedgley Park Rugby Club to hand over their baton to the next runner in front of a cheering crowd of supporters. The race is an adult event (15 years and over). There will be prizes for the first teams and spot prizes. Teams can be all male, female or mixed.

Entry is £5 per team member for affiliated club runners  - £20 a team, and £7 per team member for unaffiliated club runners - £28 a team (plus booking fees).

The route is on trails around Philips Park which are wide and generally firm but may be muddy if there has been rain so trail shoes are advised. There's lots of space at the rugby club to relax and enjoy the event together with a charity cake stand plus pie and peas, coffee and a bar at the rugby club.

You might even want to get into the Wacky Relays spirit with team outfits. Please give your team a name – maybe something appropriately themed?

There will be toilets on site and limited on-site car parking, the maximum entries are 50 teams.

Registration open at 9.30am and the race will start at 11.15 am.

TRA permit number 5506
