The Wacky Relays

Monday 29th August 2022 - new location - same great event 
At Sedgley Park Rugby Club and Philips Park, Whitefield, M45 7DZ
Organised by Prestwich Athletic Club

You all loved The Racecourse Relays in 2019 so we are excited to tell you that we have the same great event but at a different location - the lovely Philips Park in Whitefield. Come and run for fun in a beautiful landscape but also for the challenge of some rolling hills.


The relay involves teams of four runners; each runner completes one loop of the 1.3 mile/ 2 km circuit before heading back to Sedgley Park Rugby club to hand over their baton to the next runner in front of a cheering crowd of supporters. The race is an adult event (15 years and over) and the teams can be all male, all female or mixed.  There will be prizes for the first teams and spot prizes. 

The route is on trails and tracks around Philips Park which are wide and generally firm but may be muddy if there has been rain so trail shoes are advised. There’s lots of space at the rugby club to relax and enjoy the event together with a charity cake stand, a coffee cart and a bar in the rugby club. You might even want to get into the wacky spirit with team outfits.

There will be toilets on site, changing rooms and limited on-site car parking, the maximum entries are 250 runners.

Entries opening soon!
