Cheadle Hulme Parkrun 2017 Race Report

Six Macc Harriers took the plunge and tried out the new venue for the Cheadle Hulme Parkrun at Bruntwood Park which was the next race in our Club Championships.  At this time of year the course is nice and dry but there is also the attraction of the nice playground for kids, the great café and not having to fight the hundreds of runners that are seen at some of the other local Parkruns.

The male Harriers ran very well with Mark Walker (18:08) first place overall followed closely by Rob Hasler (18:24) in second place overall. Billy Hicks (19:23) was third male Harrier placing fourth overall after a shortish 7K warm-up run to get there! Neil Hey (20:44) was fourth Harrier placing 7th overall.

For the female Harriers it was a family affair with Catherine Wilson (23:30) as first female Harrier and Amelia Wilson (26:33) as second female Harrier.

Great running everyone!

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.
