The Virtual Road Relay Competition 2021 will take place in two rounds across the following dates:
The competition is open to all Athletics NI registered members aged 15+ and is across a 5-mile race distance. Mixed teams of eight (4 x men / 4 x women) are required to complete legs of five miles per runner.
Clubs can have an uncapped number of their runners competing in the National Round – with their overall result calculated by the times of their fastest four men and four women.
Runners can only submit one result per runner. Results can be submitted by the individual runner and Open Track will automatically calculate the top four men and women for each club once the competition window closes and results are verified. Results must be submitted by Saturday 20th February at midnight.
