The City v Wharf 10k Team Run Relay
It’s time to get running for your company, for your profession, and for your location!! This event is all about bringing the two major London business districts head to head in an exciting team run challenge.
You have the option of the team 2 person 10k or the team 4 person 10k. If entering teams of 2 each runner runs 2.5k then hands over the race chip to their team mate before doing a second 2.5k. If entering teams of 4 each runner just runs 2.5k and hands over the race chip and the last runner heads over the finish line.
Your race packs can be collected at the event and will include your race number and timing baton. You can collect your race numbers for your entire team and it's up to you to decide the order of your runners. (We do not require the other team member names) Please note Batons must be handed back to our team after you complete the event. Failure to do so will result in a £45 fee as batons are very expensive to replace.
