Run the bypass – fully closed to traffic – with entertainment along the way.

Ran on smooth tarmac, the race is an out and back with the peace and tranquillity of a fully closed road broken only by our live bands every 1K!!
The bypass is surrounded by Cheshire countryside and farmland. With just the one turnaround and then it’s good straight road all the way out and back with gentle undulation along the way, this course produces personal bests every year.

The race starts at Alderley Park North and heads to the Melrose Way section of the A34 bypass, turning around at the Melrose Way/Pendleton Way roundabout and returning to finish. The course has only a little undulation for PB hunters, with entertainment at every kilometre and a fun filled Race Village – a fun day for all the family!
