Run North West is delighted to present the return of the popular 10k road race at 9:30am on Sunday 26th November 2017 on a traffic free, point-to-point course starting in the centre of Wilmslow and finishing at the same location as the popular Waters Wilmslow Half Marathon.
Run North West wanted to find the perfect sized town to hold a fast 10k. The ideal route needed to be part town, part rural with enough free easy parking to accommodate a few thousand participants. After considering many, the perfect location was right on the doorstep of our HQ and so the Wilmslow 10k was born.
Wilmslow is a town in Cheshire, that is 11 miles south of Manchester. The area close to similarly affluent Alderley Edge, is known for its upmarket lifestyle and its many rich and famous residents. Importantly for Run North West, it is also surrounded by flat leafy roads. It also has very good motorway links across the North West allowing a quick journey early on a Sunday morning.
The race starts at 9:30am and the scenic route heads out of Wilmslow along Knutsford Road before looping back round to Burleyhurst Lane and finishing on Sandy Lane. Predominately flat, the course promises fast times for club and fun runners alike.
Runners are also encouraged to get into the Christmas spirit with fancy dress optional on the day and we’re pleased to announce the official race day partner as The Christie charity giving runners the opportunity to raise funds for this fantastic cause or alternatively leave a toy at our Cash for Kids toy drop service offered at Wilmslow Leisure Centre, our Race HQ.
Following our successful inaugural event, Run the Alderley Bypass 5-Mile event, Run North West has been created to offer club and fun runners the chance to run new and varied races answering the demand for more choice in mass participation races whilst offering the very best in on the day experience.
Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female runners, with prizes in all main age group categories. Additionally every runner who completes the course will receive a bespoke medal. Course record bonus of £500 for the male and females records broke on the day.
£19 unattached & £17 attached
