East Kent Road Relays 2018

The 2018 East Kent Road Relay Series dates have now been announced, kicking off on Tuesday 22nd May with a trip to Folkestone, with events every fortnight up to the grand finale at Canterbury’s track on 10th July.

We have a very good record in this in recent years, but although the competition is fierce at the sharp end of the field the road relays have a lot more to offer.  This series of races has always been a popular way to sharpen up and get in some speed work for the summer whilst enjoying the fun of being in a team and the company of club-mates, not to mention the traditional (and now much copied) nosh up after the final race while waiting for the overall series results to be confirmed.

As always, it’s much easier if the skippers Claire Greenaway, Rich Purton can arrange the teams beforehand, and they can help with the travel as well, so please let them know if you’re intending to run, either by mail to at and or through the club Facebok page – you don’t need to run in all five races as final results in each race and the whole series are based on the team.

The home leg will be on 29th May (at Minnis Bay) – once again we’ll need a few marshals and helpers, so please let the skippers know if you can help.

Come along, support your club and have some fun!

Nice Work will be managing the chip timing etc. for these races.
