The GREEN WHEEL Relay

Sunday 23rd June 2019

47 teams took part in the 7th GWR held on 17th June. Thanks to everyone who made it possible.

Everyone who took part should be proud of what they have achieved today.

Grateful thanks to the landlord of the Bull at Newborough and Golden Pheasnt at Etton for kindly making their facilities available to runners before or after running their legs and of course for the excellent bacon rolls. Please support the Bull and Golden Pheasant in the future as each year they are kind enough to support local running. Thanks also to the Premier Inn at Norman Cross and the 3rd Nene Scout Group at Stanground for their continued support. Thanks also to Andy and the team at the track.



The GREEN WHEEL relay is a seven stage race starting and finishing at The Athletics Arena, Bishops Road, Peterborough. The total distance is Fifty miles and follows the outline of the Green Wheel.

Now in its 7th year starting in 2012 with just 12 teams the event has grown in popularity with 47 teams completing the course in 2018. Come and join us in 2019.

The Green Wheel cycle route provides over 45 miles of continuous sustainable routes around the city of Peterborough. Opening in 2000, it was one of the first large scale projects delivered by Peterborough Environment City Trust (PECT). Although aimed at Cyclists the route is equally good for running.

This race has been designed specifically as a 'Team' event, with the intention that members of the team (or non runners) support each other. Whilst instructions for each stage have been prepared the course itself is unmarshalled, other than at the changeover points where times will be recorded.

The plan is that the majority of teams will finish within a short time frame. Accordingly start times will be allocated at 15 minute intervals between 7.15am and 11.00 am. Start times will be notified on receipt of team entries which require predicted times and confirmed no later than one week before the event. Changes to team members will be accepted up to the start of the race. Second claim runners are allowed.

This years race is organised on behalf of the Greater Peterborough Athletic Network GPAN, a network of eight local running and athletic clubs.
