Location: Meet on Princes Gardens - opposite Ethos. Each team member will complete one lap of the Relay Route

Sign up via eventbrite now. Please note that only one member of the team of 4 will be required to sign up.

In an aim to make Sport Imperial events more sustainable, we will be making a few changes to the reindeer relay. We will not be providing plastic water bottles so please bring your own reusable bottles which can be filled up in Ethos. We would also encourage participants to bring their Eventbrite ticket to the event as a digital copy (on phones or tablets).

We will also be encouraging you to recycle your running trainers at our event, so if you are hoping to receive a new pair of trainers this Christmas then please leave your old trainers with us so that we can recycle them for you! Recycling your running shoes is a big step towards minimising the impact that shoe waste has on the environment.

Entries are open until Sunday 8 December at 5pm.
