Trafford AC Virtual Relays

With the current situation where there are no normal running events, and with the virtual races being more popular recently, we are planning to have 2 virtual relays for members of Trafford as an internal competition in May and June.


To mirror the usual track relay format, the 2 races would be 4 x 1KM and 4 x 4KM. the 1KM could be good for the more speed based runners at the club and obviously the 4KM is more endurance and is a similar distance to the relays we take part in for the Northern and National Road Relays (short leg). 4 people on each team. But people can take part in both.


The plan is for people to register their interest on whatsapp or by email ( by the end of Friday 8th May.

Then we will work out the draw so teams are random, but with the intention of evenly distributing abilities the best we can.


4 x 4KM relay to be open from the start of the day Monday 11th May until 23:59 on Sunday 31st May

4 x 1KM relay to be open from the start of the day Monday 8th June until 23:59 on Sunday 28th June


That’s 3 weeks for people to register a time, and there shouldn’t be any issues on the Open Track site with too many people submitting.

The entry would be free and runs would need to be solo and follow the usual social distancing guidelines. 

If people enjoyed these events and the situation with official races is still similar in a couple of months, we could potentially add another event in July, but can see nearer the time.
