Relay For Life - get your friends together for 24 hours of fun

Sewerby Hall has hosted Race For Life in the past, but Relay For Life is new for 2019.
Sewerby Hall has hosted Race For Life in the past, but Relay For Life is new for 2019.

The Relay For Life is coming to Bridlington for the first time in 2019.

You can find out more about how to get involved at an information stall at Sewerby Hall on Saturday.

Teams have to keep their baton moving around the course for 24 hours, by running, jogging, walking or even bouncing on a space-hopper - like organiser Dian Crone did when she took part in the event in York earlier this year.

Sewerby Hall is hosting a Children In Need ramble this weekend.

She said: “I really enjoyed it. You can have as many people as you like in your team. You meet some lovely people.

“We are hoping to have coloured theatre lighting around the course for the hours of darkness.”

The relay will raise thousands of pounds for Cancer Research, and teams will have almost a year to get sponsorship and organise fund-raising events. Men, women and children can get involved.

It will take place on September 21 and 22 next year at Sewerby Hall.

Head to the marquee at the hall this Saturday for more details.
