Good Friday Relays

Friday 15 April 2022

The Good Friday Relays is a free member mixed relay race for seniors (plus guest) and juniors around the outside of Bideford’s Victoria Park, and every runner gets an Easter Egg!

10am to 10.30am for registration • 10.30am children’s fun run • 10.50am teams announced and group photo • 11am race start

Registration strictly closes at 10.30 to allow the teams to be prepared (typically two males, one female and one junior, depending on numbers). The faster males are encouraged to run the lap with the junior.

Please bring a plate of food for the Bring and Share buffet in the clubhouse afterwards, where team results are presented. The bar is open for refreshments. And perhaps most importantly, everyone gets an Easter Egg – who doesn’t love chocolate!!!.
