The Rack Raid (Ruins and Castle Keeps) - (4th June 2017)
This 13 stage race takes place in Monmouthshire against other local running clubs and is a great friendly and competitive day!
The Rack Raid relay is organised by Fairwater
Runners Cwmbran and was initially established to celebrate the
tenth anniversary of Fairwater Runners and as an alternative event for those
who were unable to gain entry to the larger Castles Relay event. It covers approx. 100
miles, traveling around the picturesque countryside of the former county of
Gwent between notable ruins and castles.
The Welsh Castles Relay (10/11th June 2017)
This is a famous 20 stage event from Caernarfon near Anglesey all the way through Wales to Cardiff, held over two days with ten races per day. We need 20+ committed runners of any ability for this epic. Transport and basic accommodation is laid on. Lots of fun and team bonding!

The Cotswold Way Relay (Saturday 24th June 2017)
Go to the club's Cotswold Way relay page here
The last Saturday in June is the day for the off-road team runners. This race, following the ancient Cotswold Way long distance path, comprises ten stages - and in recent years we've put in four teams. We need 50+ runners (inc lots of women). It’s mainly off-road and very scenic. We do some training runs over the course in the weeks leading up to the event to familiarise ourselves with the route.
Offa's Dyke Relay
We ran the Offa's Dyke (North to South) as a relay in 2011 and 2013. It's a bi-annual event for us so it should be back for 2016. If you are interested in joining in, email anyone on the committee or register your interest on the bulletin board.
Please register interest on the bulletin board or let either of the club captains know if you'd like to be involved in any of the relays.
