Macclesfield Harriers & Athletic Club

A few Upcoming pre-Xmas events ....

On Saturday 16th December there's the last North Staffs XC League races at Staffs University, Leek Road Stoke. Races start from 12am for the juniors, 1:30 for the Senior Ladies and 2:10 for the senior men. Even if you've not run any of the first 3 races (or indeed never run XC before!) you'd be more than welcome along, it's a great way to support your club, not too demanding, all free and you don't need to pre-register. There's usually some car sharing to get there. Presentations for the series will be from 15.30 onwards at the University: and there are always plenty of individual and team prizes coming in the direction of Macclesfield.

On the same evening (Saturday) all senior members are invited to a social drink or two in the Chester Road Tavern, which unsurprisingly is at 18 Chester Rd, Macclesfield SK11 8DG, from about 7:30 pm. Daft Xmas jumpers will of course be much appreciated (but see below re fancy dress...).

On Sunday morning 17th December, 11am start, there is the Roaches Xmas Cracker race from Tittesworth Reservoir Meerbrook. An 8 mile race up and over the Roaches, all for good causes, and, as well as being a fine race in its own right, there are prizes for the best team and individual fancy dress (the individual prize has in fact been won by a Harrier for the last 3 years!) So with a bit of creative thinking see what you can come up with.

And last but by no means least on Wed 20th December, start time 7pm at the Vale Inn Bollington there will be Andy Skelhorn's traditional orienteering event, up to 90 minutes running round the streets and tracks of Bollington and thereabouts collecting random clues. All welcome: maps and clue sheets provided: if your map-reading skills are next to useless you'll be in good company, as long as you can find your way back to the pub.

Hope to see you at one or more of these !!
