    • An beautifully designed glass Poppy commemoration plaque
  • We are asking each gym (not each team!) to raise £500 sponsorship in support of the campaign

RELAY RACE RULES: 

  • Measure out 100 metres on a stretch of land or field, or use a 100m  running track
  • Put a marker down at each end – each member of the team must pass the marker at either end before starting the next lap
  • Each stretcher must be loaded with 100kg of plate weights (4 X 25kg weights)
  • No modification of the stretcher is allowed (no wheels attached!)
  • A minimum of 2 women must be carrying the stretcher during any one single lap
  • When not carrying the stretcher the remainder of the team must run with the stretcher for all 100 laps (i.e. everyone runs or carries the stretcher together for all 100x100M laps)
  • How often you change carriers, or the number of carriers on the stretcher per lap (46 or 8) is entirely down to your strategy
  • How you carry the stretcher (shoulders or hip height) is your decision
  • Some means of verifying the number of laps completed is required – we recommend a Strava-type app
  • Please record your relay race using Hyperlaps or Timelapse (or equivalent)
  • Once completed, send your time to  Deane@werememberthem.org.uk so we can post it on the National Leaderboard
  • Each team can race multiple times to try and better their times as often as they wish – but your final time must be submitted to us by September 30th 2018

FOR THE FASTEST TEAMS:   

  • In October we hope to invite the fastest teams from each gym to compete in a LIVE NATIONAL FINAL  venue and logistics to be confirmed
  • The overall winning team will win a photoshoot with an award-winning sports photographer and a specially designed trophy
