Group photo for marathon runners for Macc Express

Please pass on this message to people in the club you know who are running in either Manchester or London marathons.

I am writing the club’s next Macclesfield Express article, which will be on 5 April ahead of the London marathon and just after the Manchester marathon. I know the actual London marathon isn’t till 23 April, but the article will be about the club as a whole rather than individual successes/times.

We will have a group photo for the article this Thursday evening (30 March) at 6.15pm at the club house/track. It would be great if we could get as many of you as possible there. I suggest wearing your charity top for the photo, if you are fundraising, else your Harriers top.

Look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.

Good luck everyone taking part.

B Group Offroad Runs from Tegg's Nose

... will 'officially' recommence from Tegg's Nose top car park from a week next Monday, 3rd April. Then every Monday through the summer, (but not generally bank holiday Mondays, although there will probably be a run during the day on those dates).

There will almost certainly be some folk running this coming Monday 27th March as well if you want to come along.


2017 Poynton Village 10K Race Report

Ideal conditions greeted runners for the Poynton Village 10K where the route started with a sprint down Park Lane, a small loop besides Poynton Lake, then a long climb up to the Middlewood Way which was then rewarded with a nice downhill stretch before a final sprint back up Park Lane for the finish. An early start meant that runners could enjoy this fun multi-terrain 10K before any Mother’s Day celebrations. There were 14 Macc Harriers who turned up on this lovely day which was a welcome change from the bad weather at some of the recent races.


2017 Wilmslow Half Marathon Race Report

The mild, breezy and damp conditions did not deter runners at the popular Wilmslow Half Marathon on Sunday where 43 Macc Harriers joined the almost 4000 runners who took on the challenge of the half marathon distance. If running a half marathon was not tough enough one runner, Shantelle Gaston-Hird, broke the backwards running World Record by 20 min in a time of 2:27:09 in support of the anti-bullying charity BulliesOut. None of the Macc Harriers who raced ran backwards or broke any world records, but there were still many excellent performances with over half the Harriers gaining PB’s for this distance.
