Hairy Helmet Relay

The Third Annual Hairy Helmet Relay

Yes it’s back again like a bad smell, The Hairy Helmet Relay!

A two and a bit mile course across Darley Park for you and 3 of your mates followed by a free locally produced pint sponsored by Derventio Brewery, a soft drink or a cup of tea! All of the proceeds from the race go to Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young Adults. Last year we had 88 teams from joggers to athletic clubs, which raised in excess of £1200! There is also a 1 mile fun run before the main race so everyone can be involved and help the cause.

Weather permitting this is ideal for a social as there’s a BBQ, some live music plus lots more beer to drink

This year it is £5 per runner so just £20 per team which is less than most races for a single place!

We have improved our race by including:- Chip timing by Threshold Events  (so all the category winners will get their prizes on the night!) Trophies for Senior females and males An individual trophy for course record Online entries and payment

There are 11 categories to choose from and the winner of each gets their entry money back!
