hi Trevor & Helen,

just a quick line to say that entries are now open for the 2012 event! I
would be grateful if you could circulate the details to your club members
in case they may be interested in taking part. This is a great prep run for
the Green Belt Relay! There is a full page feature in the October Running
Fitness edition, in case they need any encouragement!

1066 RELAY SUNDAY 6TH MAY 2012


The second staging of the 1066 Relay will be held on Sunday 6th May 2012,
with 60 -70 teams of runners from all over the South East expected to take
part in this 5 stage off-road relay organised by Hastings Runners. The
33.25 mile race starts in the grounds of historic Pevensey Castle, and
follows William the Conqueror's 1066 Country Walk route passing through
such iconic landmarks as Herstmonceux Castle and Battle Abbey, before going
through Westfield, the Brede Valley, Icklesham and the medieval town of
Winchelsea en route to finish in the charming town of Rye.

The inaugural race was a great success, attracting 39 teams and raising
over 1600.00 for local charities. Entry limited to 60 - 70 teams, so
please enter early to avoid disappointment. Any teams having to withdraw
will get free entry to 2013 race. Race website:
