9:30am | Sunday 19th September 2021

Run North West are delighted to bring you the ever-popular Trafford 10K. One of the UK’s most popular and quickest 10K’s for club runners, with elites travelling from all over Europe to run this super-fast course.

For 2021 the Trafford 10K will take place in September, it will revert back to its normal March date in 2022, this is to hopefully avoid a more COVID restricted event.

The one lap course is perfect for fast times ran on scenic country roads starting and finishing in Partington near to Manchester. The route heads towards Dunham Massey before returning back towards Partington. Enough potential to start the year with a PB!

The race is licenced by UKA race licence: 2021-41430

Numbers will be available for advanced collection from our store in the 3 weeks leading up to the race, and also available to collect on the day at Race HQ – collection dates will be announced on social media. On the day instructions/the Race Booklet will be emailed to you in the month leading up to the event which will contain full information about the number collection process.

Due to road re-openings this race has a cut off time of 1 hour and 40 minutes. If you are unable to run within this cut-off time, might we suggest taking a look at our other 10K events that have a cut off time of 2 hours.

Completely optional, but every person who brings their own bottle of water is helping to save the planet one small step at a time.
