Vale Royal AC - Senior Section

Running and Athletics in the Heart of Cheshire.


Welsh Castles Relay 2019 is on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June 2019.

Please email or text/call 07720437865 if you are interested by end February.  We will need a minimum of 25 people to commit before deciding whethere to enter the club.

This is a 20 person relay, starting in Caernarfon, overnight in Newtown, and ending in Cardiff, covering 211 miles. The 20 staggered legs range from 7.7 miles to 13.1 miles in distance. It is a fantastic weekend and is a real "feel good" team event. It would be fantastic to get new faces and juniors along, together with the core runners who love to do it each year. There are a few running families in VR and it'd be great to have you along. Age 17+ can run any distance. Age 16 must run a leg no longer than 9.94 miles (16k). You need to be first claim Vale Royal at the date of racing, so remember to rejoin/join VR in March.

Take a look at and for more info, or just ask around at the club - it's a long standing event which many VRacers have competed in before.
