About the race
You don't have to be a great runner to participate we have runners of all levels.
The run starts at Rose Hill, at the beginning of the Middlewood Way. (See the Map of the race)
Runners usually start gathering from 9.30am and you will need to register before 10.30am, if registering on the day.
The approximate start time is 11am.
The course takes the competitors down the Middlewood Way, just past High Lane, then a gentle climb up onto the Macclesfield Canal and back to Marple. As the trail path is not very wide, runners are set off in a staggered start, in groups of 15 or so, depending on their predicted times. The finish line will be at Marple Social and Forces Club on Lime Kiln Lane, where participants can stop for a well-earned complimentary pint and sandwich.
