Ed Prickett Relays

Every year, Nottingham University Athletics Club holds it’s own relay event each spring around the spectacular grounds of University Park Campus. Ed Prickett, one of the best sportsmen our university has ever seen, tragically lost his life when he was knocked down by a motor vehicle outside the Gateshead Stadium, whilst representing the University of Nottingham Athletics Club in the BUSA Outdoor competition on the 2nd May 2004.


As a mark of respect for Ed, the annual University organised race was renamed: “The Ed Prickett Memorial Road Relays”. Ed was a remarkable Person whose enthusiasm and laughter reflected upon us all.
