The Barnsley Boundary Relay is organised by Penistone Footpath Runners Club and takes place annually, on a Saturday, in early June. It attracts a large field of entries from many local clubs and is a fun, social event to take part in.
The route is multi-terrain following the boundary of Barnsley MBC, using the route of the Barnsley Boundary Walk. It is a race for teams of 10 runners, with each running legs on roads, tracks and footpaths of between 4 and 11½ miles: 73 miles in total. Each leg involves a mass start as the first runner of the previous leg finishes.
A summary of the legs with approx. start times are listed below, together with route details (and GPX files for those more technically minded):

As a club we try to enter as many teams into the event as possible each year with teams falling into the following categories: Mens, Womens, Mixed and V40, V50 and V60. The club covers the cost of entry so you just need to make yourself available for race day and ensure you recce your leg in the weeks leading upto the event so you know where you are going!
If you are interested in taking part then please contact our team captain, Adelle Marsden.
