MKM Hereward Relay & Ultra

Scenic Relay or Ultra race, spanning over 39 miles from Peterborough to Ely

March AC

POSTPONED - The Revised date for the Hereward Relay & Ultra is Sunday 9th February 2020. Please can you let Stephen Cowell ( know if you wish to race on the new date, and if you will require a new race number or if you have kept the original. Thank you.

The 2019 Hereward Relay and Ultra was postponed due to flooding and a waterlogged course, the new announced date is Sunday 9th February 2020. The relay race will be by invite only with invites being sent out during the summer.

The Hereward Relay was first run in 1998 when 14 teams took part and has grown with 117 teams taking part in 2018. The race starts in Peterborough and follows (as far as possible) the Hereward Way for over 39 miles to Ely crossing over bridleways, fields, bridges and tracks and is therefore unsuitable for wheelchair users. Teams consist of four members who each run one stage.

The 2019 momento will be a stage specific medal, with similar medals for Ultra runners and Volunteers. Cash prizes for first three teams, first three all ladies teams and for individual stage winners.

Any data and runner information, name, date of birth etc. that is collected is only used to calculate and publish results.
