ENTRY FOR THE 2018 RELAY RACE 

 

Firstly, there are a few rules for submitting your entries:

 

1. Each team entry should be submitted by the Team Captain

2. Team Captains can only submit ONE entry - you cannot captain two teams!

3. Each team entry must contain the names of at least three members.

 

 

Entries will open on Sun 6th May at 8:00pm and will remain open for ONE WEEK.

Entries must be submitted by Team Captains. Each captain should only submit ONE entry - you cannot be a captain of more than one team. Captains will be asked to provide the names of at least TWO other team members. That is ALL the information we need from you at this stage. If these two other names are not provided, the entry will be cancelled. If we catch any team submitting multiple entries to increase their chance of getting a place, ALL of their entries will be cancelled. 

When entering the relay race, please be aware that one of the things we will take into consideration when allocating places is your choice of team name. 'Such-and-such club Ladies A team' will most likely not get a place if other teams have more interesting, funny, and cheeky names. Sorry,  but that's just the way it goes. 

Successful teams will be notified by email as soon as possible after entries close (probably a few days). Please be patient and don't pester us about how long we're taking, as it definitely won't increase the chances of your team getting a place. Thank you! 

Please note: To enter the relay race, you must first register and create a personal account with EntryCentral. You will be prompted through the registering process when you start to make your team entry. It will only take a minute or so to create an EntryCentral account, and it will then allow you to return to your team entry at a later date and supply the full details that we will need from you before the race, such as team members' mobile phone numbers, dates of birth, and full medical information. Full team information MUST be supplied by Sunday 14th October or your team will be removed from the entry list. Team Captains will receive an email reminder about this nearer the date.

Each year, profits from the Jedburgh Three Peaks ultramarathon and relay race are donated to various charities of our choosing. For 2017 our main charity recipient will be the Refugee Survival Trust.

It's a Scottish charity, run entirely by volunteers, providing small crisis grants to refugees in Scotland who are facing destitution. You have the opportunity to add an additional donation at the time of entering the race, and cash donations can be made at the refreshment window in the rugby club on race day.

Please do visit their website to learn a little more about the work they do and consider adding to the donation pot.  There is a brilliant and informative animation that really explains the situations when crisis grants are necessary.

 

Last year the combination of runner donations and race proceeds amounted to a donation of £2,300 to the Scottish Transgender Alliance.

There will be 300 ultramarathon places and 25 relay team places.

Places for the ultra marathon will be first come first served. We're not expecting a massive rush so please don't panic too much about entering.

Entries for the relay race will remain open for ONE WEEK, closing at 8:00pm on Wed 16th May.  Team places for the relay race will be allocated by ballot. 

Priority will be given to teams whose runners have previously marshalled at our event and/or at other SUMS races.

Don't get in touch with us to grumble about this. If you can find the time to run ultras, you can find the time to marshal at them every now and then!

Entrants for both events must be at least 20 years old on race day

Oh, and once more, the relay race is compulsory fancy dress :-)
