Under normal circumstances the club organises six races each year — historically Run Macc Fest being the biggest in terms of entrants and money raised for charity. Results and reports for the club-organised races are given in Race Results below.
The club has a strong belief in supporting the local community and currently donates all net profits (after costs) from each of these races to local charity — we even openly show our race costings so that participants see exactly where the money goes! Macclesfield Harriers & A.C. is one of the few clubs to do this.
In addition, club members currently act as race organiser for other local fell races including the Bollington 3 Peaks and Rainow 5 races (in May), the Wincle Trout Run (June), the Langley fete fell race (July) and the Andrew Heywood Memorial Windgather Fell Race (October) – whilst these are NOT club races the club provides support for them in the form of volunteer marshals, timekeepers and also allows use of the club race signs. The club also helps out at other local events such as the Tegg’s Nose fell race (part of the annual sheepdog trials (August) and Bosley Fell Race.
