The Greensand Ridge Relays were first run in 1987 based on a straight race from Northill Church to Waterside Park, Leighton Buzzard. In 1999 the Route was reversed to finish close to the Crown Inn in Northill

This is a Handicap Relay Race for teams of six people who run on foot consecutive legs from Waterside Park, Leighton Buzzard to Northill Church. The “way-marked” long distance footpath known as the Greensand Ridge Walk governs the majority of the route. Leaflets are available from Bedfordshire County Council Leisure Services. Please refer to the details in the Route Description for where the course differs slightly from the way-marked route.

Teams will be eligible for the following trophies, provided that they consist of six different people, each running only one leg each for one team.
The Greensand ShieldThe First Team across the Line
The MuntjackThe Fastest Team
The Backpacker (Dragon)The Fastest all Ladies Team
The Flyers TrophyThe Fastest Mixed (3M+3L) Team
We also welcome individuals from a participating club wanting to tackle all six consecutive legs as an endurance run (34 miles).
