The Ridgeway Relay is a team relay, organised by Marlborough Running Club. It is run over ten legs, the legs varying in length from 5.4 miles to 11.0 miles.  The route leaves The Ridgeway itself some 2 miles before Overton Hill, and continues across Fyfield Down to the finish in Marlborough.

At least two of the legs must be run by a female runner.  For ladies teams up to two of the legs may be run by a male runner. The route is scenic, hilly and off-road. Teams are responsible for their own route planning & support on the day and we strongly advise that you recce your leg in advance!

 

Teams compete for a team trophy on the basis of shortest total time taken to complete the course. Cut-off times are applied on some legs to ensure the race finishes by 8 pm, but teams will not be disqualified for missing the cut-off times, it simply means the next leg is started before the previous runner arrives - hard luck if he or she is running both legs!
 

Competitors may run more than one leg, but must run complete legs and all changeovers must take place at the designated locations.

We are once again indepted to Barry Cornelius for taking almost 1000 photos along the race in 2016, and for him making these freely available for people to download.  A link to Barry's collection of photos is given below.  If you re-use any of his work, do please give Barry due credit.
