12:20 - 17:00
The Welsh Road Relay Championships will take place at Pembrey Country Park on Saturday 16th September.
The event takes place at Pembrey Country Park near Llanelli and is organised by Welsh Athletics with support from Carmarthenshire County Council.
The Country Park comprises 520 acres of grassland and woodland adjacent to the eight mile stretch of Cefn Sidan beach.
Race HQ is based near Ski Pembrey (SA16 0EJ). There will be hot and cold refreshments on sale and full toilet facilities. There will be space near the changeover area for club tents. First Aid for the day will be based from this position, and deployed when required.
Entries will close on 6th September at midday.
The course takes runners on a scenic and traffic free route around Pembrey Country Park. It has been designed so that runners only need to complete one loop each before handing over to a team member.
In multi loop legs the runners should be aware of when they will be changing over. There is good visibility of approaching runners from the change-over area. IT IS THE ATHLETES RESPONSIBILITY TO FAMILIARISE THEMSELVES WITH THE COURSE PRIOR TO THEIR RACE.
Athletes are requested to give priority to runners when warming up and avoid running on the course where possible. The park has many other woodland paths and trails that can be used.
Marshalls will be positioned around the course and will make every effort to inform pedestrians of the event, however please be aware of other park users.
Please listen to PA announcements for information throughout the day.
