Cummins Relay and Team Challenges


Sunday 14th October 2018, Victoria Park, Leicester

We're over the moon to be sponsoring for the sixth time, the Cummins Relay Challenge as part of the successful Leicester Marathon, and this year we have three options to choose from: two Relay Challenges and new for 2018, a Team Challenge event.

Option 1: Half Marathon Relay Challenge - Your team of 4 run a leg each around the Half Marathon route, completing approximately 3.25 miles each. Your team result will be calculated from when the first team member crosses the start line to when your last team member crosses the finishing line. As in all relays you will have a baton to swap between legs.

Option 2: Marathon Relay Challenge - Your team of 4 run a leg each around the Marathon route, completing approximately 6.5 miles each. Your team result will be calculated from when the first team member crosses the start line to when your last team member crosses the finishing line. As in all relays you will have a baton to swap between legs.

Option 3 and New for 2018: Half Marathon Team Challenge - Your team of 4 – 7 members will run the full distance of the Half Marathon route. Your team result will be your fastest four finishing times.

Which ever Challenge you choose, as well as having fun and getting fitter, it’s all about raising money for LOROS our local charity, that cares and supports terminally ill patients, their families and carers from across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Last year, we had 56 teams enter, who managed to raise over £15k for LOROS, which brings the total that has been raised by the runners and supporters to over £47,000. Fantastic.

We’d love you to enter this year as we want to hit that £15k again and, with a huge amount of interest so far, we are confident that with your help we can get there.

Every penny of your entry fee, and any money you raise in sponsorship, goes directly to LOROS. To boot, you get to have a great team event, some fun (honest) and (hopefully) to get fit in the process - what could be more of an incentive!

Not running, but want to help? If you'd like to get involved, we'd love your help! Simply e-mail relay@cummins-solicitors.com

Your teams will start and finish at Victoria Park, where you'll be able to enjoy well-earned hospitality after the event. Start time is 9.15am for all the challenges.

Don’t miss the early bird offer which stands at £100 for both the Relay Challenges (options 1 and 2) and £33 per team member for the Team Challenge (option 3).

Your support of this fantastic, local charity will be greatly appreciated.
