NA 6&4 Stage Relays Entry

Friday, 29th August 2014

The 2014 Senior Northern 6-Stage and 4-Stage Road Relays are on Saturday 20th September at Birchwood Business Park.

For those that don’t know, it’s a team relay event. Teams are of 6 for men and 4 for women, as the title suggests! This year, equality rules as both men and women run the same distance – each leg is approx 6K (3.75 miles). The aim is to qualify for the Nationals at Sutton Park in Birmingham – with the first 25 men’s teams qualifying (the women’s team tend to get an open invite).

It’s a brilliant team event, and is one of the biggest on BUH&AC’s calendar – the country’s best runners, present and past have done it and in recent years, Bolton has got into the good habit of attending and qualifying in strong positions. We’re slowly improving year-on-year, and with the team ethos strongly established now through the CLGP, let’s keep it up.

Daryl Bentley must have entries in by Saturday 6th September. If you want to run in a team, let him know ASAP by telephone, text, email, Facebook or the good old face-to-face at the track.

Do NOT enter individually. ALL ENTRIES AND LIAISING with Northern Athletics must be done by a team manager i.e. Daryl.
