Cotswold Way Relay 2018 – Sat June 23rd or 30th TBC
===========================================

This has been a regular fixture on the AAs' calendar for a number of years and has really grown in popularity within the club.
It is a really social & fun event, and a great way to meet other members. We'd love you to be involved. At the time of writing I am yet to have confirmation from the organisers though as to whether we will have the same restriction with a cap of 5 teams per club as in 2017, but I think we will.
If it is 5 we would like to enter one ladies team plus 4 mixed teams. Chances are we will have more people interested than our 50 runners places so I will be as accommodating as possible.  
For those new to it, it is a one-day event, this year on Saturday June 23rd or 30th, I am awaiting confirmation from Team Bath, the organisers as to the date. Teams of runners from many local clubs tackle the entire Cotswold Way from Chipping Camden leaving at 7am, through to Bath, finishing in the early evening - a total of 104 miles.
We run it in 10 legs. It is not a true relay in terms of handing over a baton; instead each leg has a set start time throughout the day & each runners time is amalgamated for a total team time. Each leg is anything from about 8 miles up to just over 12 miles
Without wanting to put anyone off though, it is an unmarshalled & unsigned event over some pretty hard terrain in places and there are "sometimes" grazing animals.
But fear not, each leg will have its own AA Leg Captain to get everyone ready for the day including most importantly recce run(s) of your leg. The recce runs are great fun and very social too.
We also sort out a post-race Curry night as a bit of a celebration.

Timetable (that I have absolute 1st dabs to change…. a bit)

Friday 2nd Feb - Entry forms go live on AA website
Sunday 4th March - Deadline to enter by. This will be an absolute fixed deadline.
Sunday 25th March - First draft of teams issued.
Sunday April 16th - All entry fees to be paid. Any withdrawals after this date will not be refunded

After this, leg captains can start working out recce runs.
You can get more info on the run by going to the CWR website: http://www.cotswoldwayrelay.co.uk/

Entering

You enter via Almost Athletes, not with the organisers. The entry form is on Almost Athletes website in the Races/Events drop down
Cost this year is TBC but last year was £13.50 each, this includes a Tech Tee Shirt. DON'T PAY ANYTHING YET - I will sort the teams first

Leg Captains

Please indicate if you are willing to be a leg captain. Main duties are recce runs, logistics/lifts on the day & handing out tee shirts, something I have failed miserably on in 2017.

Leg Preferences

For leg preferences I will l be as accommodating as I can but no guarantees. If you absolutely can only run a certain leg, include this on the form. If I cannot get you on the leg, I won't include you.

Kings & Queens of The Cotswolds

Any members who have only ONE or TWO legs needed to complete all ten should note this on the additional info please.
