Equinox 24 Hour Relay 21 / 22 September 2019

Mark Webster got a team of 8 together to do the Cotswolds 24 hour relay. About 3 days before we were due to take part the event organisers cancelled. The team had been planning for weeks and we were gutted not to be taking part.

After a couple of weeks Mark found the Equinox 24 hour relay and 5 or the original team were available and this was booked.

Mark Webster

The venue was located at the Belvoir Castle Estate near Grantham and we decided to travel down in 2 VW vans and set up a camp area with tents, gazebo and club flags.

The team consisted of Mark, Andrew, Adam, Derick and Martin. Mark’s son James also came along and helped us with tea making etc..
