coast to cathedral on the West Mendip Way
2018 Changes
There are a number of changes to the event for 2018: See below for details on each.

The next relay is on Saturday 15th September 2018


the 2010 start on Uphill beach

An off-road relay race starting at Uphill beach and finishing at Wells Cathedral. The route is 90% off-road and more or less exactly follows the West Mendip Way along footpaths and bridleways.

The race is a 'hand-over' relay, run without marshals, water stations or other assistance. Teams are responsible for their own safety and for researching the route although their progress will be monitored at check-points at the end of every leg.
