Welcome to the Wessex Ridgeway Relay Race, quite possibly the best day of running you will ever have - and what's more, as it's a relay race you get to share it with your running buddies! What's not to love about a day running though the beautiful Dorset countryside?
What is the Wessex Ridgeway Relay?
Starting in Tollard Royal, teams of between 2 to 6 runners will compete in a 100km race along the ancient Wessex Ridgeway. The Wessex Ridgeway Trail is a ridge top trail crossing Dorset's stunning countryside.
With 12 legs to compete, ranging between 4 and 8 miles, your team will be guaranteed a day of running with stunning scenery (with maybe a hill or two thrown in for good measure!)
What can we expect?
12 great legs running over some of the South's most stunning terrain, competing against 24 other teams all looking to be crowned Wessex Ridgeway Champions! You will soon get drawn into the banter and camaraderie with the other teams as overall positions change throughout the day... Doing a recce of the legs is highly recommended to avoid getting lost (much to the amusement of the other teams!)
