Event Description

Please note there is a 3k Junior race for 10-15 year olds which is £1 only - Pay on the day.


The race entry fee for the main race also includes parking and entry to the fete.


Race held under FRA Rules and Regulations. No safety equipment required for this race.


The race route follows some footpaths but a lot of the race route is only open for theday of the race, but  come and run the local footpaths if you want to  recce the course, and enjoy the good local footpath network of challenging hills! and get a feel for the area and the challenges on the day. there are some great longer routes over to Wincle via Shell brook valley and over Croker hill to the north and back via the reservoir which has  a circular route around it with just a short section of road. Bosley also links well to the canal towpath for a flatter route if desired.


The race start is Bosley school and runs from the school east towards the reservoir where it joins the footpath running round Bosley reservoir ( A Macclesfield canal feeder reservoir and not a drinking water reservoir) it crosses Smithy lane and runs across farmland towards the footpath running from Stiles meadow farm eastwards towards Bosley/Wincle MInn, eventually joining Minn End lane, where it descends briefly into Shell brook valley soon leaving the drive to Kisswood farm and looping back round a short sharp climb back up to Minn End lane and the highest point on the run. Good views can be had for those wanting a breather in all compass directions towards Shutlingsloe to the north and the Roaches to the east (in case any of you need any reminding of these well known run routes and local high points!) . You will also see good views to the west , the finish a few miles off and some metres lower too! and wider views right out to the Mersey and the Welsh hills if your vision isn't too blurred and you have the time to take the views in!  Its not quite all a welcome descent from here but mostly so, and the going will be wet and rough underfoot in a few places to keep your mind on your footing rather than the views at least some of the time! The return leg rejoins the route out just east of Stiles Meadow farm and then retraces the route back over the fields and alongside the reservoir back to school. the route will be marshalled and signed clearly at all points where needed and most gates will be open with no obstructions at all for the first two miles


Please note that subject to race limits not being reached in advance, there will be entries available on the day priced at £7 for the main race.


** Runners under 18 on the day of the race will need to provide parental consent see downloadable form in the 'Supporting Documents' section below. **
