The Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay is a 42k relay race with 2,110m of ascent, run in 4 stages. The highly scenic course starts and finishes in Comrie village, and follows a route up and around the hills surrounding Glen Lednock. Legs 2 and 3 cover rough mountain terrain, while Legs 1 and 4, although challenging, are closer to trail races. Leg 1 is fully marked, and leg 4 is partially marked.
The race is dedicated to the memory of our friend and fellow Harrier Simon Wake who died aged 47 in October 2008 after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. All proceeds from the race will be donated to the fight against this terrible disease.
The 2022 event will take place on Sunday 11th September, and we anticipate that the format will be more or less back to what it was before Covid, with post-race bbq, hot drinks, prizes and prizegiving!
