Rainow 5

The Rainow 5 is a small trail/fell race organised in late spring by a club member (Rachael Lawrance) and supported by the club (volunteers etc).  The race attracts ~200 runners who tackle a hilly 5 mile route around Rainow and Kerridge Ridge. All proceeds from this race have been donated to local charities. The race was not held in 2021 due to COVID-19 and it returned in 2022 with a great turnout.

Pre-entry is encouraged (watch website) and spaces from wait list will be offered where possible; limited EOD will be allowed.

About 200 runners – and great post-race cakes and chat enjoyed (additional pub option too)

Low-key prizes for category winners (usually a bottle of a local beer) to maximise donations of profits to local organisations/charities such as projects on the village hall, local footpath restoration (KRIV), and Buxton Mountain Rescue.
