Leith Cross Country Relays 2024

Cross Country relay running at its best
The “Ponydales” Course is famous for being a true cross country course and one of the toughest in the country

The Relay

On a tough cross country course of 2km, there are teams of 4 runners in the relay events, each team member runs a 2km lap before handing over to the next runner. The Open Women, Open Men, Master’s Men 35+ in Race 4 “The Gallop” run 2 x 2km laps per leg. Teams can have fewer than 4 runners, even just one runner if they so desire – gives an individual runner an option of running an 8km, or 16km cross country race

The Ponydale Challenge runners “The Sloggers” start with the Race 1 “The Short Canter” relay runners at 12.30pm and then run until 3 hours is up
