About this event

Every June, Claremont Road Runners organise the Weetslade Relay. It is based in Lockey Park, Wideopen, just north of Newcastle, and the Weetslade Country Park. All entrants and supporters can expect to enjoy a good night’s racing. The Weetslade Relay was the first relay event in the country where each club is required to select teams of three which must include at least one veteran and at least one lady.

What's included:

The race is supported by Wideopen Football Club, who provide refreshments and use of their clubhouse for changing and administration; by Northumberland Wildlife Trust, who allow the use of Weetslade Country Park; and by North Tyneside Council Events Team. Last year there were prizes for the members of the first and second teams and for the fastest male and female runners and veterans. In addition there were loads of spot prizes of team goody bags.
