3. Runnymede Runners Relay

A six-person relay set in the gently undulating confines of the beautiful Windsor Great Park in sight of the castle itself. Usually held in June. All legs start and finish at the same point so there are no complicated changeovers to organise. The race is designed to appeal to athletes, joggers, families and all sports minded people. Families and supporters are very welcome, ideal for a picnic. A fun run will also be provided for under 12’s. Each team is to comprise six runners.
