This is our fifth #runandtalk event and is open to MHAC members over 16 years and other runners who might also like to participate.


Foodbank 5K 2017 Race Report

When the schedule for road races was compiled at the beginning of the year some races had not confirmed a date which was the case for the July Foodbank 5K. When the date was finally set for this fun multi-terrain race put on by Bramhall Runners it clashed with the popular Forest 5 organised by our own Macc Harriers. Despite this conflict last night’s Foodbank 5K attracted 8 Macc Harriers who had some excellent performances.


Wizard 5 2017 Race Report

On Thursday evening the very popular and sold out Wizard 5 was ran on the trails, roads and paths around Alderley Edge and Hare Hill. After starting with a fairly flat loop around Alderley Edge runners take the paths and roads down to Hare Hill and then must return up a number of challenging hills back to the Wizard pub. There were 32 Harriers who took on the challenge with some excellent performances all around including both the men’s and women’s teams placing 2nd and a number of age category prizes.
