The wait is finally over for those speedsters who were looking to get onto the teams for this year's prestigious Welsh Castles Relay!
The Welsh Castles Relay is an annual 2 day event held in June, organised by Les Croupiers Running Club. Running the length of Wales, the route covers over 200 miles and 20 stages starting at Caernarfon Castle on Saturday morning and finishing on Sunday afternoon in Cardiff. The route passes within 2 miles of 22 castles, 16 forts (dating from Roman times onwards), 2 motte & baileys and 5 mottes. A prestigious race, 65 teams compete in the relay and have to get through a rigorous selections process.

On paper this year's men's team is the fastest Eagles team to go to the Welsh Castles Relay. 9 men will be making their WCR debuts. Let's see if they can get that pesky 4 minutes off and finish in the top 10 this year!
