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.

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.
