About the event

The Green Belt Relay is an annual team running relay event organised by The Stragglers running club.

The Green Belt Relays is a 22-stage running relay around 220 miles of the Green Belt around the outside of London over a single weekend. 

The course mainly follows footpaths, towpaths or minor roads.

The race takes place in May each year, starting at Hampton Court on Saturday at 08:30 and ending in the nearby Bushy Park Sports Centre on Sunday at about 18:00. 

Runners form teams of 11 people, and each runner runs one stage each day, with around 50 teams taking part. 

Although the race is a relay, each stage starts at a fixed time. This allows each stage to be a competitive race in its own right and also allows teams of all different standards to stay roughly together as they advance along the route.

Sutton Striders has entered two teams in the 2024 event, and places are extremely limited. 

See internal club communication for further details on how to enter - information is available in the weekly email, our Facebook group and the WhatsApp groups.
