The Tracy Wilson Relay event will commence the same time as the half marathon and is a distance of 21.1km broken into 4 legs.

The 4 leg relay challenge gives you the opportunity to get together with 3 friends or colleagues to complete a half marathon and experience the exciting race atmosphere as a team.

It’s a great way to get active with friends and it also gives you a fantastic opportunity to promote your business, encourage activity and sport in the workplace whilst creating a true team spirit of training and running together.

You can register your team in either the corporate or general team category.
