The Derby Runner Midland Counties Autumn Road Relays will be held in Sutton Park on Saturday 25th September 2021. Entries are available online (see link below) until Saturday 4th September 2021. Many clubs have still not entered despite invitation letters being sent to clubs several weeks ago. We believe that this might be due to changes in club officers and team managers since road races were last held. Further details are available on the Midlands Road and Cross-Country Facebook page but in summary there are races for:

Senior Men and Male Masters (35+ on the day of the race) over 6 laps of 5.88 kilometres. Separate Male Masters teams may be entered.

Senior Women and Female Masters (35+ on the day of the race) over 4 laps of 4.33 kilometres. For the 2021 race there is no provision for separate Female Masters teams but this will be reviewed before the 2022 Autumn Midland Relays.

Young athletes (male and female in under-17, under-15 and under-13 age groups) over 3 laps of 3.88 kilometres.
