Short, Sharp and Fast, you and a partner run the 2.5K route twice, choosing to run one lap and hand over or complete two laps and then hand over. This is tactical as you will run one lap a little quicker but then exchange will take a little longer so you decide.

Entry is only £15 per person ( +£2 supplement for non UKA Club members).

Choose to run as an all female team, all male team or mixed team.

Race Packs are picked up on the evening from 5.00pm. The riverside race village opens at 4.00pm, we have music, catering and a bar until 10.00pm, parking is free and only 50m from the race village where exchange is based. 

The race route is very flat and a mix of grass and road, it has been designed to allow you to see your team mates at a couple of points and give you plenty of warning as they approach for exchange.

The race is chip timed, live results will be available on your phone and split times will be given for each lap as well as the total time for your team.

The venue is Mapledurham House, Reading RG4 7TR around 15 minutes from central Reading.

The Reading venue for rapid relays is Mapledurham House, we have a wonderful setting on the banks of the Thames and our route runs through the grounds of this World Heritage site.
