#wlf #relayrace 20 November, 6pm GMT more details…

There is a #wlf #relayrace scheduled for 6pm GMT on 20 November 2011.

The winners were: #teamlance ! Well done!

The other 5 teams were in a dead heat for runner up places.

Concatulations to all organisers and competitors!

The race was arranged by @Mr_Pie and @JazzmanCat, based on an idea from Peachy.

Race catering was provided by @FrufruB.

Commentator: @villaninireland (@Ms_Pud is stand in if required)

Referee: @MrTibbsatAP

wlfrosetteEvery competitor got a rosette and a cupcake for taking part. Thanks to @Mr_Pie and @FrufruB for their generous donations.

How it worked

  1. 6 teams maximum
  2. No magic tricks or DRS systems are allowed
  3. Each team consists of 4 runners + up to 2 reserves and a cheerleader. Starting order can be changed until 5pm GMT on the day of the race
  4. There are 4 runners, 1st one sets off & passes a baton to the 2nd runner (who is waiting on the track), 2nd runner runs & passes baton to 3rd runner who runs with baton to the last runner
  1. Commentator @villaninireland will state CHANGE when baton exchanges are to take place
  2. To decide the winning team, the ref has chosen a secret word, which only he knows. The last 4 runners on the athletics track must try to guess this secret word. Hint: it will be race-related, e.g. ‘track’, ‘fast’, ‘won’ ‘trophy’ etc. The 1st to tweet the secret word wins. If the last 4 runners don’t manage to guess the word, other members of their team may also guess.The anipal tweeting the secret word wins the #wlf #relayrace for their team (speed/effort will also be taken into consideration)
  3. The Ref’s decision is final. No discussion will be entered into
  4. Rosettes will be awarded after the #relayrace is complete


More support for all teams is welcome.
