Event Description

Please note £1 for every runner will be donated to the National Trust as the Bosley Cloud is NT land.

Cut off time

Please note as in previous years there will be a cut off time of 60 minutes (at Marshall point 'J' on the downward leg from the cloud - Stile point). The distance at this point is approximately 3.9 Miles into the race, if you don't feel you can make this time then please do not enter. Please view cut off point on course map attached.

NEW FOR 2020 – There are two major enhancements for the 2020 race:-

  1. We have secured chip timing, the start and finish will now be at the same point on Biddulph Valley way.
  2. There has been a slight route alteration to remove the Tarmac section on Dial lane near the Bridestones, thanks to our kind landowner the route around the historic bridestones is now all off road!
