After a pandemic induced two year hiatus, The Barratt Homes Relay Marathon returns for the 8th year on Sunday 1st May 2022. Organised by the Rotary Club of Romsey, the Marathon is a unique community event held in the spring of each year, on the Broadlands Estate. Open to the whole community, the event raises funds and awareness for local charities and other good causes.
The Relay Marathon gives an opportunity for anyone to take part in a team of up to 10 runners who will collectively run 26miles and 385yards. Each runner will run two circuits of 1.3 miles to complete their leg of the course before handing the baton to their teammate. Every penny the Teams raise goes to charities and good causes of their choice, with the whole entry fee supporting Rotary's work.
COUNTDOWN UNTIL RACE DAY
We are continually looking for the support of local businesses and charities to run the event. If your business is interested in sponsoring the event, putting in a team or placing an advert in the programme then click on Get Involved.
Local charities and good causes are invited to come along on race day to host stalls either as a fundraising initiative, to entertain to the crowd or help us marshal the race. If your charity is interested then have a look at the Charities section under Get Involved.
