Team Relay

The Team Relay Event is very popular, with around 2,400 teams and 12,000 competitors taking part in 2019.  The Team Relay follows the same route as the main Marathon Run and the Wheelchair Race.  This event is perfect if you are exploring an interest in running as there are ‘legs’ of the marathon route ranging from 4 miles to 6.9 miles.  As the name suggests, this is very much a "Team" based event rather than competitive.  More often than not friends, work colleagues or schools will form a team and raise much needed funds for charity.
