Hi everyone, it’s time to get your entries in for 2019 Welsh Castles Relay. We intend to field two teams once again, one in the Open category and one Vets team to build on last year’s excellent performances.
The race is Sat 8th and Sun 9th June with the minibuses travelling up on Fri 7th June – get it in your diaries and enter via the WADAC website! (Note that you must be a first claim WADAC runner to be eligible to run.)
The entry is £28 per person and has gone up a little since last year but this includes a commemorative t-shirt from the organisers at the end of your stage.
Once you’ve entered there will be a short online survey to select preferences for a WADAC tech t-shirt (limited edition!), how you plan to travel up to Wales and during the race, what you plan to do about accommodation and evening meals and which leg you’d like to run (in an ideal world). There’s a couple of bonus questions for those who want to help make the music playlists in the minibuses! Look out for this on email after entering.
As a reference for the costs, it comes out at around £120 per person all in for the weekend as the minibuses are heavily subsidised by the club.
If we are in the lucky position to have too many runners then priority will be given to runners who have done the race before or have served the club well over the last 12 months, the remaining runners will then be on the reserve list (which gets used every year for one reason or another!). It is of course possible that your plans may change, and you are no longer willing or able to do the race or pick up an injury, a refund or exchange system will be in place – step up, the reserves!
