Registration for the Welsh Castles Relay on 9th & 10th June is now open on this website

Welsh Castles Relay 9-10 June 2018

The Welsh Castles relay is one of the highlights in the WADAC endurance running calendar. A fun-filled 200 mile relay that winds it's way through Wales from Caernarvon Castle in the North to Cardiff Castle in the South.  Just being part of the accompanying motorcade of support vehicles is as much fun as the run itself!  

NB this event is only open to first claim members of WADAC and at this stage all we need is for you to register your interest in taking part via the event registration page:

The first leg starts in the morning of Sat 9th June in Caernarvon and the 20th and final leg finishes late afternoon Sunday 10th June in Cardiff.  It is not a baton relay so each leg is a competitive race within a race and everyone is part of the exciting motorcade.  You can make it a full weekend event or join up with the fun for as short or as long a period as you wish. Our aim is to apply for two teams this year which means we need 40 runners plus reserves! 

We therefore need members to show their interest and enter via the event registration asap.  Our chances of getting 2 teams are improved if one of those teams is a ladies team so a special request therefore for ladies to come forward and take part.

The £25 fee covers the cost of your race entry and includes a commemorative T-shirt from the organisers at the end of your leg plus who knows maybe a stage winners jersey too !  Details of other arrangements and optional extras such as WADAC technical T-shirts, transport and accommodation will be communicated at a later stage.  At this stage we just need your entry and commitment to run a leg.

We recognise there may be some athletes who are ultimately unable to make it to the event (through injury etc) so we operate a pool system and a reserve list so substitutions and refunds are generally possible......early registration helps us all and the actual allocation of race legs and sorting the other logistics will take place nearer the time.                                 

Please feel free to ask any questions to:  wcr@wadac.org.uk                                       

In the meantime, get it in your diary and please don't delay register today!
