The 2019 Hereward Relay and Ultra will be on Sunday 24th November. 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.
