Want to experience The Wall but think 69 miles might be a bit too far? Then try our Relay class!

Grab your mates and enter our BRAND NEW Relay Class. Form a relay team of 2 to 4 people to split up the route.

Pass the satellite-tracked baton from person to person and complete this iconic challenge between Carlisle Castle to Gateshead Quayside on foot. Run it, trek it, skip it – we don’t mind! Get to sample Hadrian’s Country in bite sized chunks while still receiving all the benefits of Rat Race’s fantastic support and achieve something truly great as a team.

How does it work?

Your relay team can be between 2 and 4 people.

Whether it’s 2, 3 or 4 of you – the price per team will be the same.

 

Each team will receive a single ‘baton’.

This baton is a satellite tracker that can be followed online by teammates, supporters and our race management crew.

 

There are 5 legs with transition points…

…at our 4 pit stops where there is parking, food, loos and medical support.

 

Your team will require their own transport…

…to meet up at the pitstops and pass the baton.

 

The relay class have full access to all our pitstops and safety systems.

Plus they will have a different colour race number and t-shirt issued to make it clearer which runners are in this class.

 

Only 1 Team member on the course for legs 1-4.

On leg 5  you may all run together to cross the finishline victorious.

 

So there are some things to work our with your team: ‘Who goes first?’ ‘Who runs which leg?’
