Pie & Peas 5 Mile 2017 Race Report

Wednesday evening was the fourth race in the Cheshire Road Race Grand Prix, the Pie & Peas 5 mile race put on by Vale Royal Running Club. This multi-terrain race takes in the roads and paths around Moulton. While the weather was nice right before the race, about 5 minutes into the race the heavens opened up soaking all the runners and making the off road portions of the race a little slippery. Despite the heavy rain there were some excellent performances by the 23 Harriers who raced, most likely spurred on by knowing that they would get a nice Pie & Peas dinner when they finished!

Plea for runners and helpers in September

September is a big month of running for the Macc Harriers. Sunday September 24th is the club’s own Macc Half/5K event which is still in need of volunteers to help out and runners to participate in one of the races. If you are free that day, as a Macc Harrier you should be either helping out or running to make this event a continued success for the club.

Details on registering for the Macc Half/5K are here:  http://www.macc-half.co.uk/

Contact Ray O’Keefe ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) if you want to volunteer to help out.

On Saturday September 9th the club is participating in one of the few team events of the year, the North West Road Relays. This is a fun team relay event open to everyone. We need both senior women and men for this event with each woman running a 5.2K leg and the men a 6.6K leg. We can enter as many teams as we want and even if we don’t have the numbers to make a full team you can run a leg and your time will be officially recorded on Run Britain/Power of 10. So why not contact the senior team manager for this year, Keith Mulholland ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) and be a part of this fun team event. Details at this link: https://www.race-results.co.uk/results/2017/efnwcrr17.pdf

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.
