Don’t you long for that post-Christmas blowout, a relay race in the freezing cold between Christmas and New Year? Well, we have the answer for you, the newly-relaunched Nottingham Christmas Relays. For those of us who’ve been around the Nottingham running scene for a few years, the old Christmas relays at Wollaton Park were the antidote to any Christmas overindulgence, a short relay of mixed teams on an undulating mainly off-road course. After an absence of a couple of years, HPRC have brought the Christmas Relays back at our home of the National Water Sports Centre, Holme Pierrepont. We hope to see old friends and new for this new (old) event.
