Yes, I still believe that you can run a relay if you have just 1 GB of RAM.
(this is a lower boundary)

assuming we talk about:

I consider that a lot of memory for a relay added on 2018-02-15 and 
not being guard yet.

You are currently running version which is lacking the latest 
denial of service mitigations,
it will get a lot better with the upcoming stable releases
or if you upgrade to tor or newer.
