The Wacky Relays

Sunday 13th August 2023 at 11:15am
At Sedgley Park Rugby Club and Philips Park, Whitefield, M45 7DZ
Organised by Prestwich Athletic Club

We are back for a second year of The Wacky Relays in the lovely Philips Park in Whitefield. Come and run for fun in a beautiful landscape but also for the challenge of some rolling hills. A surprise round each bend - maybe you can catch the pigeon??

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 plus coffee/tea/pie and peas and and a bar in the rugby club. You might even want to get into the wacky spirit with team outfits.

All profits will go to The Running Charity in Manchester which support young people at experiencing or at risk of homelessness. 

Booking now open on bookitzone

There will be toilets on site, changing rooms and limited on-site car parking.
