Following discussions between Sunderland City Council, England Athletics and the North Eastern Counties AA, the Signals Relays have been given the green light to go ahead on the re-arranged date of Saturday, 31st August 2019, at the regular venue Hetton Lyons Park.
If you're interested in competing, please see our sign-up sheet on the Club Noticeboard page. Entries close 19th August.
A great way to sneak in an extra running session, the relays are overlooked by Durham castle and Cathedral by the river Wear. Running exclusively on closed university grounds the grass track is perfect for a “blast”. Running two laps of a 1500 metre course predominantly flat with a cheeky little bank which adds to the views over the river as you descend. Prizes for age groups, Senior Men and Women and Vets too. This event is run under EA rules and for affiliated club members only.
Please use on street parking around the city as none is available at the racecourse itself, there is plenty of parking within ten minutes walk of the course. Changing facilities will be available.
