3 Person x 4.5km Relay

This event is open for BRRC Members and Visitors.

 

This event consists of three runners per team and each runner completing three circuits of a 1.5km loop from the clubhouse to the West End ferry terminal.

You don’t need to organise your own team – just come along and we’ll organise the teams - one “fast”, one “medium” and one “not‐as‐fast” runner per team.

 

With three loops of the same course, there are plenty of runners going around and the competition can be fierce. Not quite as serious as a Club Championship, the race always proves to be one of the most popular and enjoyable races of the year. 

All participants run 4.5k, made up of 3 x 1.5k loops.

The first runner for each team will start the race at 6.00am and that runner completes 3 laps (4.5km), prior to crossing the start/finish line they will tag the second runner, in the changeover zone. The second runner then crosses the start/finish line to commence their 3 laps. Click here for diagram of start/finish line & changeover zone.

The third runner for that team tags the second runner, in the changeover ares, after their 3 laps (4.5km), and then crosses the start/finish line to commence their 3 laps (4.5km).
 

The team whose third runner crosses the start/finish line first after completing their 3 laps (4.5km) wins the event.

 Please report to the Race Director before 5:45am for details of your 

Relay Team and team members.
