London Cardiff 24 Hour Team Relay

Twickenham, London

Organiser's Description

Teams of 8 -10 runners start in London and run a 160mile relay race to arrive in Cardiff, exhausted but elated. Run alongside canals and rivers, down country lanes and pavements, through forests and towns, and over the Severn Crossing, navigating with the maps provided and a compass.

The course is broken down into 24 stages, which can each be taken on by one or more runners, if you can run 10k or less you can still take part! There are also 3 additional team stages to make sure you can all get as involved as possible.

When you’re not running a stage, you’re in your team minibus, travelling between checkpoints, resting, eating and keeping spirits high.

Our famous “Survivor Hoody” for every team member.

Team Survival Pack – nibbles, water, wet wipes, kitchen roll and other essentials.

Medal for every team member upon finishing.

GPS trackers and Emergency response vehicles during the event.

2 sets of maps of each stage.

The 160 mile route takes you from one capital to another, by country lanes, along canals, off road and on pavement.

Stages vary from on road to off road, although we have very little running through grass.

Most stages have a mixture of underfoot conditions with the majority being on hard surfaces which are easy to run on. These are pavements, country lanes, cycle paths and foot paths.

Stages vary from 3 miles to 12 miles.

The route splits into 24 individual stages and 3 team stages. The individual stages vary in length with 10 stages below 6 miles, 10 stages between 6-10 miles, and 4 stages over 10miles. Runners can complete as many or as few individual stages as they want.

The 3 team stages are all below 2 miles, happening at the beginning, middle and end of the route. The majority of the team must be running these stages together.

Each stage begins and ends with a checkpoint, where stage times are recorded and the relay baton handed on to the next runner. The majority of these checkpoints are manned, with opportunities for comfort breaks and refreshments.

The Checkpoint Map provides an indication of roughly when the checkpoints are.

The precise route changes every year due to roadworks and annual alterations to bridleways and footpaths but will be confirmed 3 weeks before the start of the event
