March Athletic Club welcomes runners of all ages and abilities

MKM Hereward Relay

The 2018 Hereward Relay and Ultra will be on Sunday 25th November. The Relay will be by invite only and invites will be sent out later in the year.

The Hereward relay was first run in 1998 when 14 teams took part. The race starts in Peterborough and follows (as far as possible) the Hereward Way for over 38 miles to Ely crossing over bridleways, fields, bridges and tracks and therefore unsuitable for wheelchair users. Teams consist of four members who each run one stage.
