Organiser's Description

The Railway Relay

A team relay race (self-navigated) from Peterhead to Ellon.

A quiet and scenic off-road route following the old railway line.

Nine legs from 2-4 miles each (totalling ~27 miles).

A fundraiser for good causes in the Ellon area.

The proceeds of this year's event will be going to EPIC (Ellon Parks Improvement Committee) EPIC.

EPIC is a constituted community group looking to improve the play parks in Ellon. It was first formed when two swing bays in Auchterellon park were condemned, with the council not having the budget to replace them.

Sunday 1st August 2021

Start waves from 1000-1200h.

Please note that teams NEED a car driver to shuttle them between legs, or alternatively the team can navigate the legs by bicycle.

-- Covid-19 --

As it stands, Aberdeenshire is expected to be at level zero before the 1st of August, and the First Minister indicated that she hoped that come the 9th of August that the vast majority of all legal restrictions would be lifted. As such, it seems reasonable that this event can take place safely under Covid legislation, and guidelines from the Scottish Government and Sport Scotland.

Refunds will be issued if the event is cancelled. I'm also happy to issue refunds should any team change their mind and withdraw. Please note however that Entrycentral take a 4% fee which I cannot refund.
