The event centre at Middelton, Barbon offers an excellent venue with access to the fells that provide a backdrop to the area. As only one short race is currently run in the area the Relay offers the chance to explore a relatively unknown part of Cumbria away from the usual honey pots.
We are indebted to Lord of the Manor Chris Harrison-Beck, Farmer of the fields, Roger and Pauline Bainbridge for the use of their fields and thank Middelton and Barbon Commoners association for their support in allowing us to use this area.
We are busy in our organising committee getting things together for the big day! This page will be refreshed as we pull things together.
If you are wishing to camp for the weekend Roger and Pauline will be offering this option from the Friday night. There will also be food and a bar available on the Saturday night at the pre-race party, booking essential.
We would ask your co-operation that you only access the upland area from agreed access points if you are looking to recce the area. The courses will be on the web site soon and will be available to be walked on the 17th, 18th October before the event.
We will be posting more detailed information as the date gets closer. However, if you have any burning questions please e-mail the website and we will endeavour to find you the answer.
