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
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 Senior Men in Race 4 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 (SM grade) cross country race
The Ponydale Challenge runners start with the Race 1 relay runners at 12.45pm and then run until 3 hours is up
HOW MANY LAPS CAN YOU DO IN 3 HOURS?
