Run North West was formed in 2016 to meet the growing demand for quality mass participation road races and began with the Alderley Edge bypass 5 mile race in June 2016.

A team of experienced and passionate runners now offer you both high quality events and specialist running retail.

We host a total of 12 road and trail events across the North West of England. Our 6 super fast road 10K events, all with PB potential are the Trafford 10K, Alderley Edge bypass 10K, Wilmslow Summer 10K, Southport Seaside 10K, Knutsford 10K and Wilmslow Festive 10K. We also have six fantastic sell-out trail races with Quarry Bank Spring and Summer, Alderley Park Winter and Summer, Lyme Park Mid-Summer and Tatton Yule Yomp! Our unique innovative medals are a highly cherished part of the Run North West experience.

In 2018 Run North West made a natural move into specialist running retail, opening our first store in Hyde, a famous running store opened originally by Ron Hill forty years ago. In 2019 we took the decision to move our store from Hyde to Wilmslow, the location of our events business HQ. By merging our team to one location we have been able to focus even more on providing a world class running experience.

Our team is made up of runners who compete at various levels but all have one thing in common; a love and passion for running, with a desire to contribute and improve the local running community which encourages many first time runners through our events and retail store.

We offer an extensive range of running trainers, performance clothing and accessories with complimentary gait analysis available in store and online. Gait analysis helps you pick out the best running shoes for your needs using video technology and our expertly trained team. With an great range of road and trail shoes we have something for everyone stocking major running brands including Asics, Brooks, Garmin, Goodr, Hoka, New Balance, Ron Hill, ON, Saucony, and many more.

Whether you’re joining us in store, shopping online or running one of our events we can’t wait to see you soon and share our love of running.
