Members of Driffield Striders are looking forward to entering the Wolds Way Relay Challenge. Follow our facebook page for regular updates and ‘live’ feeds throughout race day.

A Ten Leg Relay Challenge Run limited to 25 teams from local UKA Affiliated Athletic Clubs. This is not an official race but timing will be provided.

On behalf of Club’s a Team Captain must enter each team. After entry they will be contacted to supply team member’s details.

Entry fee is £50 per Team (£5 per runner), this is to cover costs and supply a memento, a donation of £1 per runner will also be made to  National Trails  who maintain the Yorkshire Wolds Way. 
The route is following the official Yorkshire Wolds Way starting at Hessle Foreshore (7.30 am) and finishing at Filey Brigg. There will be no additional waymarking or marshals. It is therefore essential that teams recce the route/legs in advance.

Eight of the ten legs vary in distance from 7 to 9 miles the two remaining legs are 5 and 3 miles.
