Virtual Gordon Smith Relays 2021
We decided earlier in the year that we would not be able to host a Covid secure event for our ever popular Gordon Smith Relays. So, we have decided to hold another Virtual Gordon Smith Relay event instead…
As usual, there are separate relays for Ladies and Men, who will compete in teams of 3 to run a leg each.
Each leg has to be 2 miles and must be ran between Sunday 9 May and Saturday 15 May.
The minimum age to compete is 16, but at least one team member must be classed as a V35 or older.
We ask that club captains verify runners results on Garmin/Strava. We also ask that club captains collate the results and return them no later than 5pm on Saturday 15 May to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please use the attached spreadsheet for the results. No other format will be accepted.
There is no entry fee for the relays. However, as you may be aware, many charities continue to struggle for money especially as mass fundraising events have had to be cancelled.
We were astounded by the phenomenal amount of money that the North East running community helped us raise for St Oswald’s Hospice for last year’s virtual relays.
We hope that each runner will make a donation, no matter how small, to the wonderful St Oswald’s Hospice again this year.

Please remember to follow social distancing rules.
Thank you and good luck!
