The event takes place every March at the Roger Bannister running track on Iffley Road, Oxford.

Teddy Hall Relays

The Teddy Hall relays starts and finishes on the iconic Iffley track. It's one of the oldest and largest student relays in the country. The relay is a scenic 4 x 7K route through the centre of Oxford.

We enter several relay teams every year. Runners of all abilities are most welcome.

The 2020 relays

This year's relays take place on Wednesday 11 March, starting at 1.30 pm.

Each team member runs one leg of the 7K course.

Runners on the first leg start together. They run 200 m on the track and then out onto the course. When first-leg runners come back in, they run the 200 m to the hand-over. The second leg runner sets off around the track. This continues until all team members have run their leg.

The emphasis for this event is definitely on the fun.

The teams

We will enter as many of the teams below as we can.

  • Women's teams: four female runners
  • Men's teams: four male runners
  • Mixed teams: two female plus two male runners

Picnic in the stands

That's right, it wouldn't be an AAC event without cake. Bring along some food to share (or gobble down all yourself). We will huddle in the stands for a picnic. Come rain or shine!

The route

You'll start with 200 m on Iffley Track and then head towards Donnington Bridge. Next, it's down onto the towpath along the river. You'll go a short way down Abingdon Road (turning into St. Aldate's) to the entrance of Christ Church Meadow. The course takes you around the Meadow out to Rose Lane and the High Street. Finally, it's back onto the track to the finish.
