Peter Palmer Relays - Sutton Park, Birmingham.
11/12th September 2004
The Peter Palmer relays take place at Sutton Park on the 11/12 September.
For those of you that don't know about the relays - they're the junior equivalent of the Harvester - a multi-leg relay that starts before dawn and finishes mid-morning. You stay overnight in a school.
Teams are 6 people, at least 2 girls and 2 boys. There's the following legs, the first leg is in the dark, the others should be dawn and day legs:
Leg 1) 5 - 5.3 km red
Leg 2) 5 - 5.3 km red
Leg 3) 2.5 km yellow
Leg 4) 3 - 3.5 km orange
Leg 5) 3 - 3.5 km light green
Leg 6) 5 km green
In a new rule, we can run up to three people on the yellow leg with the first one back to count.
The closing date is July 19th. I need to know if you're definitely interested (and which leg you'd like to run) as soon as possible. We'll organise transport. I expect the club will subsidise entries and transport costs but I can't give you any idea of actual price yet. I'll probably need to get a deposit off you when I put the entries in.
Any parents that would like to offer their services as helpers would also be extremely welcome as we'll definitely need some assistance.
