Lytchett Relays

Race Info


After a year of uncertainty and the cancellation of the 2020 event, we are sorry to announce that this years Lytchett Relays which was due to take place of the 4th July 2021,will also be cancelled.

After a recent conversation with Holton Lee Estate. They have had to restructure their operational model in how they use their buildings and wider estate to ensure that their residents are kept safe and protected from COVID-19. These changes have impacted their events calendar and sadly, had to make the difficult decision to cancel all scheduled events, included the Relays for 2021.

Given the current situation and uncertainly around when events might be able to take place once again, we are not looking at other venues or scheduling for later on in the year.

We are waiting on confirmation to when we can reschedule a new date for 2022 with Holton Lee.

All Team entries will automatically roll over to 2022.

The Lytchett Relays provides a festival type experience which brings local communities of runners together - something which we hope we can do once again when we get through these crazy times.

We appreciate your support, patience and will keep you updated

Keep safe
