"Just received a Heads-up about the Roach Valley Way relay race on the 17th June, thought some of H90J might be interested.
Its like a mini Essex Way, so teams of 4, run over 4 stages about 6 miles average, semi-trail run so find your own way, and starts and finishes in Rochford. Its in aid of Havens Hospice so its for a very good cause and you will get a Medal, but for that reason its not a freebie, unlike the Essex Way, so £13 per runner.
A big club like ours should be able to get a few teams together and there's a Ladies Team Prize, so a bit of in-club competition? Or you could all run together, save getting too lost, I know what you're like!
So why not organise yourselves into teams of 4 and enter? Should be a good day out!"
We now have a full team for the Green Belt Relay on the weekend of the 19th/20th May.

But things can happen, people get injured, so a few reserves would be great, and they can always run a stage on Saturday or Sunday or both, and any reserve can have the choice of whichever stage they fancy(unless we have a withdrawal, in which case……)
It would be much better if we had spare runners rather than miss out a stage with a late withdrawal for whatever reason!
