Watching the Rack Raid Sunday 27th May

Please support where you can - lovely weather for it!

For supporting the Rack Raid locally

Kath, me and Den should be coming into Usk Square from 1.20pm.

Paul Murrin, Matthew and Gerry will be embarking on the toughest leg 13.8 miles Usk to Tintern from the square at 1.20 too.

If you go through Devauden towards Trellech for about 2 miles to the crossroads above Cobblers Plain runners on this gruelling stage will have done their last huge hill and cross over the Devauden Road towards Tintern – from about 2.30pm.

They will finish at Tintern Abbey where Mark, Niki and Berna will set off to Chepstow at 2.50.

A good place to see the runners on this stage is Devauden Village Green ( half a mile on past the handicap carpark ).

Mark Niki and Berna should be coming down through the Dell to Chep Castle from just before 4pm – when Dave, Sam and Jane Rymer will be heading up the Dell to Caldicot.

A good place to support Dave, Sam and Jane is to park at the Indian Empire on the A48 and walk back to the cut though just down the road ( there will be lots of people here ).

Their finish is in the grounds of Caldicot Castle where Joc, Helen and Beckie will be starting at 4.38 pm.

You are welcome to follow the relay for the rest of the day or just come to the finish -

to watch our final runners come up the hill to the Castell-y-Bwch where there will be food available and the prize giving happens.


Directions from Caerleon to the Castell-y-Bwch Inn
