This year The Wilco Island Relay will take place on Sat 11th July. It is a 10 leg relay race around the Island of Efate for 10 runners. There are several categories to enter from the serious to the social runners who are there to be part of a special event. There are a range of distances from the legs at the beginning which are shorter but contain hills to the longer flatter sections at the finish. When you’re not running you travel close to your team on a bus to support them along the way.
