Knowles Transport Hereward Relay & Ultra

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

March AC


Sunday 28th November sees the much anticipated return of the Hereward Relay and Ultra. This year the main event sponsor is Knowles Transport Limited.

The Hereward Relay was first run in 1998 when 14 teams took part and has since grown with as many as 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. Relay teams consist of four members who each run one stage. Those feeling more ambitious or looking for a tougher challenge can take on the ultra and run all 39 miles solo to become a local legend.
The memento will be a stage specific medal, with similar medals for Ultra runners. Cash prizes for first three teams, the first all ladies team and for individual stage winners.
