GB Relay 2014 News

Tonight, I had a different post planned, but it has been usurped by some GB Relay news.

For those who don’t know, @TheWelshWookie and I recently took part in a world record attempt for the longest running relay. It ran continuously, 24 hours a day, throughout June and early July. You can read my race report here. We really enjoyed it!

Unfortunately, the news isn’t good. I found out tonight that at some point, the baton was on the ground. The rules were clear about it not touching the ground. 😦

I don’t know when it touched down, whether it was before or after our stage, but I know it wasn’t us. I also don’t know if it was placed on the ground deliberately or by accident, or if it was dropped.

But, these things happen. It just means that we’ll be there for the 2015 relay, and we’ll look on this year as a dress rehearsal 🙂


Always look on the bright side, eh? 😉

  1. Aw, what a bummer about the baton! But I’m glad you’re keeping a good attitude about it–nothing you can do now anyway. Hopefully next year will be better!

  2. Oh no!!! Well as a practice run it must have been a good one. Here’s to 2015!

  3. Ah that’s such a shame! But, I would like to get involved in the 2015 attempt, having missed the 2014 attempt down here because of another commitment.
