Cotswold Way Relay

The 103-mile relay, from Chipping Camden to Bath Abbey, is held on the last Saturday in June. It’s run in 10 legs along the Cotswold Way which is mainly off road and very scenic. The stages are listed below. See also the teams for each year in the submenu.

Instructions

You need to recce your stage, which should be marked (not guaranteed, hence the need for a recce). You don’t want to be unsure of the route on race day.

You need to arrange lifts between the start and finish points yourselves. Please make contact with the club members running the same stage as you and you may be able to arrange this.

Check out http://www.cotswoldwayrelay.co.uk/ for loads of useful information.

A bottle of wine presented at club night for anyone beating a TRC stage record (listed below).

Club colours to be worn by EVERYONE please.
