MKM Hereward Relay & Ultra

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


COVID 19 STATEMENT: As you can no doubt imagine we, along with most event organisers, have been closely following the development of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is still changing regularly. It is with deep regret that, unfortunately, we are having to inform you all that we will be cancelling this years MKM Hereward Relay & Ultra. This is clearly a blow for us as an organiser, however we are satisfied entirely this is the right decision. Not only in the interests of the health and safety of our participants and volunteers, but also to the public. Thank you all for understanding and we hope for you all to join us at next years event to make it one to remember! There is currently still the Hereward Relay 2020 to look forward to later this year!

We wish everyone good health and hope you are all staying safe.

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 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.
