Ladies and gentlemen, in case the Christmas Day blues has already hit and you want an extra present before the holiday season ends, we’ve got a great one for you here: we are delighted to announce that entries for the 70th Hyde Park Relays, organised by Imperial College Cross Country and Athletics Club have opened!

The race will be held on Saturday 9th February 2019 and will start at 13:00. Registration will take place in the Union building between 10:00-12:00.

The Event:

Hyde Park Relays — the largest annual student relays in the UK — sees over 500 competitors take to the paths of the iconic Hyde Park in Central London every year since 1949 to complete 5km laps in men’s or mixed teams of 6 and women’s teams of 4, and this year’s edition is set to be even greater than previous years as you’ll see below!

Runners of all abilities are welcome, from experienced racers to complete beginners.

This could also be your chance of meeting some running legends as the Hyde Park Relays has frequently attracted world-renowned athletes such as David Moorcroft, the former 5000m World Record holder, Sebastian Coe who won the Relay’s fastest leg in 1978 then went on, two years later, to win the 1500m gold and 800m silver at the Moscow Olympics.

This is also a chance for university teams to battle it out against each other only a week after the BUCS Cross-Country Championships in Exeter…

Usual suspects for winning the relays this year include hosts Imperial College Cross Country and Athletics Club, local rivals such as UCL, King’s, LSE and St. George’s Hospital, as well traditional rivals Oxford and Cambridge, Portsmouth, Southampton, and many more from throughout the UK and European teams such as Poznan.

Following the race, all the teams are invited to join us in the College for (included!) food and a presentation ceremony before the infamous after-party at our very own Student Union.
The 2019 edition of the race will feature:

— Baton-integrated chip-timing
— Officially measured 5km course, course map is on the website (great for a PB!)
(https://union.ic.ac.uk/acc/crosscountry/hyde-park-relays-2019/)
— Inclusive post-race food
— The return of the notorious after-party!

Prizes:

You will be competing for the traditional engraved relay baton trophies for the following categories:

1st, 2nd, 3rd Internal Teams (men's, women's)
1st, 2nd, 3rd Fastest Legs (men's, women's)
1st, 2nd, 3rd External Teams (men’s, women’s)
1st International Team (men's, women's)

However, in addition to the relay batons, this year we’ve recovered the Hyde Park Relays trophy!

It’s a massive cup, and it will be awarded to the fastest team whose name will be engraved on the cup. Needless to say, this comes with eternal glory…
