Helm Hill is delighted to be hosting this year’s event and we look forward to welcoming you to Cumbria in October!

After the disappointment of having to cancel last year’s event we are back and raring to go. Of course, we have to accept that Covid may yet force us to postpone but at the moment we are optimistic that the Relays can proceed as planned. All appropriate precautions will be taken to ensure competitors’ safety and updates will be provided if circumstances change.

Location – the Event Field (containing Registration and Race start) will be located about 2 miles south of Tebay, close to the M6 in Cumbria. There are fantastic views (weather permitting) up on to the fells so we hope to see some exciting racing unfold.

Clubs will then be invited via Email to confirm entries at which time payment will be collected.  Once your Entries have been confirmed you will be asked to provide details of individual runners. All entries must be paid for and runners confirmed by 30th September. Further information will be available nearer the time.
