Green Wheel Relay practice run
The Green Wheel Relay is a 50 mile, 7 stage relay around Peterborough. It is an annual event but for us at Sawtry Walk To Run, this year is our first entry as we only started up as a running group in October 2017.
We have entered 2 teams, one led by Keira and one led by Lee. Lee is Keira’s dad and so there will be some friendly Fathers Day rivalry when the teams go against each other on 17 June.
The event starts and ends at Peterborough Athletics Track. Ken and Jon are starting each team off and Darren and Lizzie will bring each team home. Today each runner completed a practice run after being dropped off at their start point and collected at their end point by their designated driver. Ken was away and so the lovely Carol stepped in to accompany Jon on his stage which started at the track. It was supposed to be an 8.3 mile run but Jon & Carol took a bit of a unplanned detour and ended up covering 9.5 miles. Jon is now more than ready for the leg as are all our other runners. It promises to be a fab day.
