Welsh Castles Relay 2020

Confirmation of the dates for next year's Welsh Castles Relay: 6th-7th June 2020. Further details of race entry (which normally opens in the first week of January) and other arrangements will follow. Many thanks again to everyone who took part and supported this year. The feedback has been so positive, even if we were disappointed not to be able to congratulate, and present awards to, this year's winning teams at the finish in Cardiff.

Croups Committee have met to review lessons learnt from the 2019 (and 2018) race and are looking to make a number of changes for the 38th running of the event in order to modernise and indeed simplify certain aspects of the event , otably with regard to the team registration, squad declaration and race results service. Improving further race safety and reducing where possible environmental impact will also be prerequisites in 2020. We are so grateful for those who made this year's race possible but need more volunteers from within LCRC to help us organise. Please contact Phil or John if you are can help out in 2020.
