The majority of the course is run on tarmac and pavement and so road shoes are recommended. There is however approx 1.5 mile of trail which may require some better grip if the weather takes a turn for the worse. Please use your judgement closer to race day when choosing your footwear.

This years charity is Reuben’s Retreat. This worthwhile cause is helping to provide a retreat in the NW of England countryside that will relieve the distress of families and their close friends who have suffered the loss of a child or have a child suffering from a life limiting or life threatening illness.
We encourage spectators and there is plenty of Parkland to explore whilst you are waiting for the runners to return. There are even points where you can cut through from the park and watch the runners on the course at various points. Alternatively bring deck chairs, rugs, cameras & a smile. Why not bring your club tent or gazebo along – there is plenty of room. There will be hot/cold drinks and food available, along with various snacks from the tuck shop.
We will have photographers around the course and in the start/finish arena. The photographs will be available on various websites following the event, we publish the links as soon as they become available
