Race Route
The start & finish are about 1000m from Race HQ, Birchwood Community High school.  To get to the start walk over towards the ASDA petrol station, then walk to the roundabout, then go over the footbridge.  When you come down the ramp go through the underpass (so under the road) which is now in front of you and takes you to the race start and finish on Warrington Road.
The race is a “lollypop course” so keep right on the footpaths as you run out and back. The finish is about 50 m from the start.  The What3Words for the start and finish is  webcams.latest.slimming.

If you have entered the race and are unable to run for whatever reason, like most races we are unable to offer refunds.  Also, we are not able to defer your race entry to the following year.
