The Green Belt Relay is a not-for-profit annual running relay organised by The Stragglers running club, and all surplus funds from the race are donated to charity. This year’s race will be in aid of the Marie Curie charity.
The Green Belt Relay is a 22-stage running relay race around 220 miles of the Green Belt around the outside of London over a single weekend. The course mainly follow footpaths, towpaths or minor roads.
The race has been going since 1995, and involves around 40-45 teams. Runners form teams of 11 people, and each runner runs one stage each day.
Although the race is a relay, each stage starts at a fixed time. This allows each stage to be a competitive race in its own right, and also allows teams of all different standards to stay roughly together as they advance along the route.
Further details about how to take part and the logistics will be posted here/on the WH facebook page in due course.
