UMACCC 55th Cross Country Relays
The University of Manchester Athletics and Cross Country Club is pleased to announce that the infamous Manchester Relays is back for the 55th edition! With the event founded by the late Ron Hill and John Whetton, this year’s Relays is even more special.
The Relays will take place at Wythenshawe Sports Ground (M23 0BD) on Saturday 30th October 2021. This year’s event will be chip timed to allow flexibility with staggered and socially distanced starts should restrictions arise again - which we all hope not - and to facilitate administration and results.
Men and Mixed teams consist of 6 x 3km legs and Women teams consist of 3 x 3km legs. The Mixed race will set off at 13:00, with the Men setting off straight after. The Women’s race will set off at 13:05. Leg orders of the teams are to be declared at the registration desk on the day.
The course route is new but similar to previous years and is entirely on grass so is suitable for spikes.
Prizes will be awarded to the leading teams in each category as well as fastest male and female leg runners. Prizes are provided in the form of race vouchers up to £50 courtesy of our sponsor Up & Running.
There will be several emails sent out regarding event details and of course don’t forget to keep an eye out on our social media pages in the run up to the event.
We look forward to seeing everyone in October – let’s make it a good one.×
This year's sponsor is Up & Running and they have some more good news in store for you, in addition to the £40 & £50 vouchers to spend in one of their stores should you win them. Up & Running do a 10% discount for any club runners or students. As a bonus for the Manchester Deansgate store only, if you are looking to buy new shoes from the store before the race, Up & Running Manchester will provide you with a FREE pair of running socks (offer to last up until the race).
