Juniors Preston to Blackpool Virtual Relay


To accompany the virtual Lands End to John O’Groats relay the Red Rose Adults will run, the Junior members will have the option to run a virtual relay from Preston to Blackpool.

A typical pedestrian route would be via Blackpool Road and cover 16.2 miles, or 26.07 kilometers. Can the Red Rose Juniors get from Preston to Blackpool (and maybe back too!) during the course of the 10 days of relay legs?

Junior members would get the option to run at any point between Saturday 8th August and Sunday 16th August. Covering two weekends, this would give more opportunity for juniors to get involved.

The options would be for juniors to complete either one or two x 2K stages at any point during the 10 days. This would emulate junior parkrun. Juniors could run their choice of junior parkrun route, or any 2k route of their choosing. Runners would be discouraged from all running at 9AM on Sunday at their local junior parkrun course!

Run a route of your choosing and submit the run to the organiser once completed.

Will the junior member want to complete one or two 5Ks? If they change their mind either way, that's not a problem, just let us know when submitting the results.
Will you want a medal? Katy Cleece will endeavour to hand deliver these, so please add your address or collection / delivery arrangements in the comments. Otherwise that information can be included with the results email that is sent.
