Over the weekend of 21/22 May, Havering '90 were sole representatives of eastern London and Essex at the Green Belt Relay.
The Green Belt Relay is an annual 22-stage running relay race around 220 miles of the Green Belt around the outside of London over a single weekend. The course mainly follow footpaths, towpaths or minor roads. It is organised by The Stragglers running club, has been going since 1995, and involves around 35-40 teams. Runners form teams of 11 people, and each runner runs one stage each day.
As fantastic an event as this is and Havering were glad not to come last, the next event is a year away, so why not get a team together for this year's Essex Way Relay?
This race covers the 82 miles of the Essex way from Epping Station to Harwich Old Lighthouse in 10 stages. The route is mostly cross country and can be difficult through crops and across ploughed fields. Nevertheless it is a very enjoyable day out in the most attractive rural parts of Essex (with an excellent fish and chip shop and pubs waiting for you at Harwich). The course is NOT marked and it is essential for all competitors to have reconnoitred their section before the day to avoid getting lost.
