WEATHER UPDATE 6AM SUNDAY - we are going ahead today!!

If you are a participant please see the email we sent yesterday!

WEATHER UPDATE 8AM SATURDAY 21ST. We are on course this morning doing more work to do everything we can to go ahead. We have a team of volunteers clearing any ice patches and remain resonably confident that we will be going ahead tomorrow. A final decision will be made as soon as possible today. Please note we are using the original course (used for every previous winter version of this race) running up the pavement past the new houses and gym road, past Glasshouse and into the woods here as this cuts out some our biggest off road icy sections. The road section has been thoroughly gritted! This means we are about 4.5 miles again rather than the newer 5! So its the same course as always for the Winter race if you have ran it before!

Run North West are delighted to return with the Alderley Park Winter Trail Race in 2023!

Starting outside the Conference Centre, this race is a 2-lap course over 5-miles within the hidden grounds of Alderley Park, taking in the beautiful woodland, impressive lake, the working farm and the picturesque grounds.

Whether you’re looking for a new challenge or a sociable jog in the fresh countryside air, join us and enjoy a trail race through the hidden grounds of Alderley Park.
