SOAR X MK Relays, a photo essay

When the South of England 4 & 6 Stage Road Relays were cancelled in mid-September, just ten days before the race was scheduled, would be racers were left frustrated, despondent and with a gap in their pre-winter race schedule.

Fortunately, the distance running community are not ones to give up easily. In little over 72 hours, thanks to the herculean efforts of volunteers from across the club network a new event was born. Replicating what would've been the Southern Championships in all but name: The SOAR X MK Relays.

The below photo essay, shot by Jon Wallner, captures an afternoon of grass roots racing, amongst a community whose commitment to competition is what unites them.
