As many of you are now aware Steve Hopkins has decided to pass the baton over and step away from organising the Ridgeway Relay, I decided to pick this baton up and take it on to the next leg. We are extremely lucky to be invited to this amazing event and although I have only been a WRR for a short time this event was a big highlight for me last year which is why I’m so keen to be involved.
We had two teams last year but it’s likely (at this stage) we will only have one team but please do not let this put you off entering, there is something magical about the trails and in particular this route so even if you aren’t a counter we can have as many buddy runner’s as we want so get out there on the trails and run at a pace that suits you, true trail style!
I have set up a separate email for Ridgeway correspondence so please send your details over to WRR.firstname.lastname@example.org, but an indication on Spond as an overview that you will be attending will be helpful at this very early stage.
I have some time to work out the details but as you will not be surprised Steve has been extremely organised to make this event happen so smoothly in the past so I have all the information on previous years events, who took part, legs and duration so with the help of Steve Young we can step up and make this year’s event run smoothly.
In the next week or so I’d like an email with an idea on preferred leg, counter or buddy and an idea on pace over what can be technical and undulating terrain, all new members who want to get involved but are unsure about the event please email me.
