Relaython is a fund-raising event promoted by LAVic. We divide our donations between the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal and the Monash Children's Hospital.
It is a continuous relay, where the overall aim is to work together to run as many laps as possible within a three hour period. At Mentone we add an additional element where age-group teams compete to see who can run the most laps in a set period of time.
Mentone LAC will run Relaython in conjunction with the normal program of events on Saturday 4th February 2017.
The basic rules are as follows:
U6 - 20 minutes
U7 - 19 minutes
U8 - 18 minutes
U9 - 17 minutes
U10 - 16 minutes
U11 to U15/16 - 15 minutes
Additional Parent Helpers are needed to oversee the change-over stations.
Cash donations can be made on the day, or online donations via our Mentone page at everydayhero which will put the athlete in the running for various prizes. Cash and online donations will go to the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
Athletes are also encouraged to generate sponsorship money - for example they could ask for sponsors for their age-group team on a per lap basis (click here for last years lap count).
Mentone LAC will also donate a base amount of $250 to the Monash Children's Hospital, AND an additional $3 per lap to Monash.
