July 2017 Road Running Update

Want to go for a club record? Well there are currently no documented club records on the road for the 15K distance so why not sign up for the Meerbrook 15K on Saturday July 29th then claim a club record. This race is in our Road Running Championships but also includes a County Challenge Match where teams from Cheshire, Derbyshire, North Wales, Shropshire and Staffordshire will be competing. Two Macc Harriers (Mark Walker and Scott Wilson) will be representing Cheshire in the County Challenge. Entry details are below:


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.


Macc Half & 5k - Community Team Challenge

Help needed - Macc Half & 5K - Community Team Challenge

The Community Team Challenge is one way that we are promoting the Macc Half & 5K this year.  The aim is to encourage local charities, sports clubs, schools, businesses & community groups to enter a team into either event.  Teams of 3 for the half and 5 for the 5k.

We have been working hard to promote the challenge and many of you have already helped by putting posters into your work places / schools etc. but we still need more of you to help if you can. 

We are sure lots of you can think of someone who might like to enter.  Please encourage them to do so and if possible to form a team with others that they know.

We still have posters to promote the challenge, if you can put some into your workplace / school etc. then please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will get some to you and help in any way we can.

Alderley Bypass 10K 2017 Race Report

This was the second year that a race was held on the Alderley Edge Bypass. Last year there was a 5 mile race but this year the race was increased to 10K. With a fairly flat out and back course it promised to be a fast 10K. Over 1900 runners took part in excellent conditions on Sunday with 55 Harriers completing the race. There were some excellent performances from both the men and women Harriers throughout the field of runners.
