Summer Relays

Summer Relays

This is one of two open events that Durham City Harriers hosts each year, the other being the Cathedral Relays in January. The Summer Relays is a cross country relays event that takes place each year on a weekday evening either before or after the August Bank Holiday.  Each team is made up of three athletes who each run two laps of a fast, largely flat, grass course. There are races for Seniors, Veterans, Mixed Teams and Unattached Teams. A new Junior Relay event is also introduced for 2017.

2017 Summer Relays

The date for the 2017 Summer relays has been announced! Taking place on the evening of Thursday 10th August, this popular event returns for another programme of great action. We’re also excited that a new Junior Relay event will be included in the schedule, giving 14-16 year olds from across the region a chance to take part. Team and individual prizes are available, as well as spot prizes throughout the evening.
