The GREEN WHEEL relay is a seven stage race starting and finishing at The Athletics Arena, Bishops Road, Peterborough. The total distance is Fifty miles and follows the outline of the Green Wheel.
The Green Wheel cycle route provides over 45 miles of continuous sustainable routes around the city of Peterborough. Opening in 2000, it was one of the first large scale projects delivered by Peterborough Environment City Trust (PECT). Although aimed at Cyclists the route is equally good for running.
Thorney Running Club are pleased to enter multiple teams to this event every year, with teams suiting runners of all abilities. Two legs of this relay require a support cyclist for safety reasons, however to ensure safety for all our members TRC makes sure every leg is run with a support cyclist.
