First Round of Virtual Relays proves popular across Wales!

19/01/2021 00:00, In Blog /

Over the last month, runners from all regions of Wales have taken to the roads in the Regional round of our Virtual Road Relay series.

We were delighted to see performances submitted from over 1000 athletes across all four regions; congratulations to everyone who took part in particular the winners of each category.

Entries for the second round of this competition are now open – this relay will take a slightly different format as we join forces with the other Home Nations. The leading club from this round will be invited to virtually compete against teams from England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland in a virtual Battle of Britain!

The relay element of this round is open to athletes aged 15 & over. Time trial distances are also included for the younger age groups.

Full details of the Welsh Virtual Road Relays can be found here: Welsh Athletics Virtual Road Relay Challenge - we’d love to see as many club members as possible getting involved!

Along with the virtual relay programme, we have also launched our wider programme of virtual events until the end of March. You can find full details of the virtual events taking place on the Welsh Athletics website.
