Guide to Entering the Bridges Relay

Please read this guide which explains how to enter the 2018 Bridges Relay.

Firstly as the name says this is a relay and we do not accept entries from individual runners.  There are two classes of teams in the relay;
Open – 4 runners  (male or mixed teams)  (Max 140 teams)
Ladies – 3 runners (female only). (Max 40 teams)

Teams are entered by their organisation.  We classify organisations into Running Clubs and LBH.  The London Business Houses was created to organise events for employees of companies, government and academic organisations.  We use this to enable us to reward company and similar teams from pure running clubs.  Please note that while Open Team numbers and bibs are the same this is not the case for Ladies Teams.

To enter a team please follow the following steps
Email Greg at and send an entry form and pay for your teams or enter via Entry Central.

Greg will allocate you team numbers and a PIN.  Runner details must be supplied before the race although changes can be made on the night.  Runner details must consist of;

Name, Gender, Age Class, Bib Number.

Runners can self-register by texting 07508897699 a message in the following format;


PIN is the four digit code supplied to the team manager
A 55 is the runner’s Bib
M or F is their gender
S or V is age category V is men 40 or older, women 35 or older on the race date.
Y or N is whether the submitter wants the phone sending the text to receive result texts for the runner.

There should be no spaces in the message except in the first and large segments, i.e. you can leave a space between your first name and surname.

All phone numbers received will be deleted once the final results have been published.
