Event Description

The Bollington 10k

Sunday 28 August 2016 | 10am start

 

ONLINE ENTRIES TO THIS EVENT HAVE NOW CLOSED, HOWEVER YOU CAN STILL ENTER ON THE DAY!

 

On August 28th 2016 on behalf of Bollington Health and Leisure there will be a 10km run taking place from the leisure centre.

Bollington Health and Leisure is a non for profit organisation and has been serving the community since 1977 It provides a gym for over 1000 members, exercise and leisure facilities for hundreds more and renowned swimming classes to thousands of children every week.

We are only able to offer these services because of the determined fundraising of local people in the 1970’s and 80’s that made it possible for the Centre to be built and stay open through hard times, but the last 35 years has taken its toll on the facilities.

We are dedicated to providing you with the very best in leisure facilities for years to come, but as the Leisure Centre is a registered charity we can’t do this on our own. All the money we make is reinvested in the day to day running of the Centre, leaving very little in the pot for these projects.

We have no doubt that the same community spirit that started our story 35 years ago still prevails today, so over the coming months we will be running a series of fun events, activities and initiatives to raise the funds we need to bring the Centre up to date, starting with the changing rooms.

If for any reasons we are unable to raise the amount needed for large projects or there are surplus funds left over, we will use the donations to address other much needed developments within the Centre.

Parking

Parking in Bollington can be tricky at the best of times. Although we have limited use of the parking at the nearby Tytherington Business Park and Bollington Health & Leisure, entries are still rising. For this reason we are advising wherever possible to walk if you’re local, buddy up, or even better get a lift on the day.

For alternative parking please use the Business Park in Tytherington, Marshalls will be there to provide you with directions

On Arrival

Please ensure you leave enough time to find parking and make your way to Bollington Health & Leisure,Heath Road, SK10 5EX, no later than 9:30am where you can register and collect your race number.

You will then be directed to the start line. We will not be setting off in waves as you may have experienced at larger runs, however if you are a less experienced runner or intend to walk the course please position yourself towards the back of the field.

Storage

Bollington Cross Football Club have kindly offered us the use of their pavilion for storage on the day. Although this will be manned items left here will not be secured so please only bring essentials and no valuables.

First Aid & Health and Safety

First Aid

There will be a dedicated First Aider based at the site (adjacent to the start/finish line) as well as many of the course marshals being first aid trained.

Health and Safety

Please ensure that you follow the instructions of the race orgasisers and course marshals.

We have in place road closures towards the beginning of the course and all junctions along the route will be marshalled, however traffic still may be running along much of the route so the highway code does apply and please use the footpath if possible.

Please also be aware that the entry to the Middlewood Way stage is via a short set of steps, so please take care here.

Don’t forget your supporters

Additionally, can we please encourage you to bring along your friends and family to cheer you along, there will be stalls supplying snacks, Bollington Brewery Beer, soft drinks and cakes. All money made for the sale of these items will be added to the charity pot!
