The 2017 Cathedral Relays will be held on Sunday 15th January. This is a cross country running event for teams of 3 runners, with each runner completing two laps of a fast, mainly flat, grass course. Each leg is approx. 3000m in total.
The event includes 3 races:
1: Veteran Men (35+)
2: Senior Women/Veteran Women (35+)
3: Senior Men
Races 1 and 2 incorporate the NEMAA Championships for registered runners. An extensive prize list is available across age categories.
Competitors must be 16 years of age or over on 31st August 2016.
PLEASE NOTE (13/01/17): due to the recent weather conditions the location for the Durham Cathedral XC Relays event has been moved to the University’s Playing Fields behind the Maiden Castle Sports Centre (DH1 3SE). The course will remain as 2 laps of flat grass terrain, totalling ~3,000m. All events and timings remain unchanged and will go ahead as previously advertised. The Start/Finish area will be positioned on the field immediately across the wooden footbridge that leads from the Sports Centre/Boathouse to the playing fields. Toilets and refreshments will be available in the Sports Centre.
PARKING: Parking at the Sports Centre is available for race officials, marshalls, helpers and those dropping off club tents. All other athletes/supporters should park in the City as if using the original course – the new location is only a short distance further along the river from the Racecourse.
A map of the alternative course is available here.
