“What is a Tag-Team race” I hear you say?
To put it simply: You are in a team of 2. When the gun goes off one member of your team sets of and completes a 5k loop returning to the start area, they tag the second member who completes the same 5k loop. Upon their return they tag runner 1 who then completes their second 5k loop, tagging runner 2 for their second lap and then you are done!
In other words each runner runs 2 laps of a 5k circuit (10k total) 20k per team
A Tag Team is a pair of runners who race as a team, taking the course alternately. One team member cannot start until the other ‘tags’ on finishing their first lap.” The race will end when both members have completed two laps, a total of 20k in distance.
Starting at the Abbey Inn on Pollard Lane, The Bramley Fall Tag-Team Trail Race takes in some of the best park trails that Leeds has to offer. A meandering course through Bramley Fall Park, one of Leeds best kept secrets!

This course at this time of year is very likely to be quite muddy, we’d like to recommend all runners to wear appropriate footwear. Due to the nature of the course (narrow paths, technical sections) headphones are not recommended for this event. This course takes place on public footpaths and respect to all users is necessary.
Charity: This year all proceeds will go to my friend Dan who is trying to raise £100,000 for Radiotherapy abroad (not currently offered on the NHS). Dan needs a lot of help from a lot of people to help him get to the specialised clinic(s) abroad and get the treatment he needs. Please get involved in anyway that you can!
