Comrie Hills Relay

Just a short message to invite you and your club to enter one or more
teams for the 2012 Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay on Sunday 9th

As you may know, the race is a 42k relay with 2,110m of ascent, run in
four stages for teams of five runners. It starts and finishes in
Comrie village in Perthshire and follows a highly scenic route up and
around the hills surrounding Glen Lednock. Legs 2 and 3 cover rough
mountain terrain, while Legs 1 and 4, although challenging, are closer
to trail races.

The proceeds from the race go to support research into pancreatic
cancer, the disease from which our friend and club mate Simon died
tragically in 2008. Last year 32 teams took part in a great day of
racing despite some wild weather. We can't guarantee sunshine for 2012
but we can offer

° category and leg prizes

° a barbecue after the race (included in the team entry fee)

° what we hope will again be a very enjoyable and competitive race.

Full race information and entry form can be found at
