Run North West are delighted to bring you the Knutsford 10K. Potentially the flattest and fastest course in the North West!! 

 

The race starts within the grounds of Barclays Radbroke Technology Centre, then heads out onto the country lanes of Over Peover, Snelson and Peover Heath, before returning to Barclays Radbroke campus. The race is ran on beautiful country lanes, all fully closed to traffic, we believe this will prove to be one of the fastest 10K races in the North West, with only 77ft of elevation across the entire course. The course overall is super flat with a modest incline at around 2K but then the course drifts down hill from 6K-8K. The rest is pancake flat.

The race is licenced by UKA race licence: TBC
