Beckenham Relays – Wednesday 22nd May

Final call for entries for the Beckenham Relays!
As it stands we have 46 entries (an odd number for teams of 3) out of a maximum 60 we are allowed, so we could do with a few more if anyone fancies it. I’m looking to finalise the teams before Wednesday when I’ll have them at the club ahead of submitting for entry to the organisers at the end of the week. So if you wish to take part please let me know (along with your recent/expected 5k time) in the next day or two.
One change to mention for this year is we will be running the relays with batons.
Many Thanks,
Further to my email below we now have over 35 Harriers signed up for Beckenham. We still have room for more and time before we enter provisional teams at the end of the month. If you’ve not entered yet and would like to take part please let me know soon before spaces fill up.

Subject: Beckenham Relays – Wednesday 22nd May

I am pleased to advise the annual Beckenham Relays take part on Wednesday 22nd May this year. Last year we entered a massive 17 teams. I have spoken with Beckenham Running Club who have confirmed we can again enter up to 20 teams this year so it would be great to have a strong turn-out, although we do need to submit entries by the end of this month to avoid allocations filling up.
For those not familiar with the event, the Beckenham Relays are for teams of 3 with each member running 2.6 Miles over a “scenically undulating” route around Beckenham Golf Course. The route is on tarmac paths. All teams MUST be entered by Running Clubs and no individual teams may enter the event other than through their Club.
So if you wish to take part in The Beckenham Relays please email me directly ( to register your interest and also let me know a recent or expected 5k time for you. The aim is to place individuals in teams of similar ability so this information will help me do this. 
Look forward to hearing from you all!
