Want to run your way to a world record?

Marathon RelayGB

Read on to find out how you can be involved.

Hi, my name is John Stanford,and I was on Radio Cornwall this afternoon to make people aware of Marathon RelayGB and also to ‘recruit’ runners.  If you are unaware, this is a world record attempt for distance relay running, starting in London near Buckingham Palace and working our way clockwise around the coast of Great Britain.

We’ll be coming through Cornwall on Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th May but I am very short of runners.  Maximum of 6 per leg for daytime runs and 3 per leg for night-time runs – running on the roads but with full safety vehicles and support.  Individuals can go for a full marathon distance if they like or alternatively we’re looking for team entries (any size from 2 to 26!) to ‘relay within the relay’.

Please take a look at www.relaygb.org and check out the Route page for information about Cornwall and Truro in particular (in between Stage 2 and Stage 3).  I would really welcome your support and would love your runners to take part.  Please do drop me a line on john@relaygb.org or call 07734 681882.

Many thanks for your time.
