4x1 mile cross country relay
Race start time - 10:30
For the second year running, the relay will be taking place at Delancey Park. Each runner completes the same 1 mile loop featuring twists, turns and climbs. Teams may be men, women or mixed (prizes are available in all categories) and any athletes taking part in the festival without a team can be allocated a composite team if they so wish. This event is open to all but does not form part of the overall individual competition. Those in the team competition need to complete the relay with their designated overall team. Teams are also welcomed from outside the main Festival.
Entries, numbers and registration
Forms to register are available at all registration evenings and the two races prior. The team declaration arrangements to be confirmed.
NB: No Guernsey Athletics team entries will be taken on the day.

The course is a winding loop based within Delancey park with a radius of less than 400m boasting many easy spectating points.
Briefing and start
The briefing will take place on the start line at 10:25. The race will be started by the sponsor’s representative on the sound of a horn or similar.
The course will be well marked with gates and arrow boards. Where there are gates, runners must past through them. As ever, the marshals’ instructions should be obeyed. This course is suitable for spikes, although when conditions are dry, grippy racing flats or trainers are fine. Where the course passes itself, marshals will be in place to make the direction clear to the runners.
