Redway Runners Furzton Relay 2019
Saturday 13th July
Furzton Lake, Milton Keynes MK4 1GA
The perennial club favourite is back, bigger and better than ever. Once again we’ll be opening the event to all comers so come and pit yourself against teams from other local clubs, and for the first time we will be encouraging juniors to join in too*.
As always the relay is both a competitive event and an opportunity to team up with some running buddies and enjoy a Summer’s day on the banks of Furzton Lake. The race is 4 laps of the lake, with each being about 2.5 miles. There will be prizes for the fastest teams: male, female and mixed, and to celebrate the inclusion of our new younger category, a fastest junior team. All participants will get a commemorative snood. It’s all about the fun, so come down with your family and friends, run, relax and enjoy the great British Summer!
This year we will be supporting and supported by our 2019 club charity, Emily's Star.
The race will have chip timing and the results will be available here on the Results Base site.
The start and finishe is near the Furzton Lake family pub (click here for more info) & restaurant. Parking is available near the pub but please note that the facilities are off limits to non-customers, and the event has porta-loos near Race HQ.

* Note that minimum age (defined as the participant’s age on the day of the race) is 11 for juniors. Any team with even one member over 17 will be classified as an adult team and therefore ineligible for the fastest juniors team category. You can of course compete in the adult team categories with up to 3 juniors in the team.
