June 2017 Road Running Update

I hope everyone is taking advantage of the nice weather to run either on the roads, fells or track. There are a number of upcoming road and multi terrain races in the Club Road Running Championships that are still open for entries or close to selling out.

This Saturday June 24th is the next race in our Club Championships, the Cheadle Hulme Parkrun. This Parkrun now takes place in a new venue at Bruntwood Park in Cheadle. It is a three lap course that is run entirely on grass and at this time of year there should not be any mud! Parkrun registration details and details on the Cheadle Hulme Parkrun itself are below.

A local evening race that is within a week of selling out is the Wizard 5M race on Thursday 13th July. This is a fun multi-terrain race that takes in the roads and trails around Alderley Edge and Hare Hill. Enter now through the link below to avoid missing out on this great local race put on by Wilmslow Running club.

Another fun local race in our Club Championships put on by Bramhall Runners is the FoodBank 5K on Thursday July 19th at 7:15pm. This is a multi-terrain race that takes in the roads, trails and also a river crossing in Happy Valley in Bramhall.  This race is also put on in June and August. Entry details can be found below:

For those looking for a little longer distance run which is entirely on the roads there are two road races in our Club Championships at the end of July and early August that you can enter. These are the Meerbrook 15K on Saturday July 29th and the Leek Half Marathon on Sunday August 13th. These are both very scenic races that should at least be tried once by road runners. Entry details are below:
