The 2022 Cosmeston Relay Race - 7:00 pm, Weds. July 6th Entries opening late May
Back for 2022 - the Cosmeston Relay Race - our hugely popular chip-timed, baton relay race in the picturesque setting of Cosmeston Lakes Country Park.

A capacity field of 250 teams have entered in recent years - and the 2019 race sold out in just 15 minutes!
Club (WA/UKA affiliated) prize categories: senior men; senior women; masters men 35-44, 45-54 and 55+; masters women 35-44, 45-54 and 55+
All-comers prize categories: men; women; mixed
