The Wilmslow Festive 10K is our traditional festive curtain raiser, helping to kick start the festive season – whether you are chasing an end of year PB or looking forward to the festive fancy dress. This race sells out in advance every year!
Starting in the town centre of Wilmslow this one lap course is perfect for fast times ran on scenic country roads, before finishing on Mobberley Road/Sandy Lane.
Please be assured we are taking measures to minimise overcrowding and keep HQ facilities outdoors in the current climate to manage the risks of any spread of Covid 19.
The start and finish areas will have minimal barriers and be spread over a larger area, registration and most HQ facilities will be outside.
Please note spectators will be unable to gain access to the finish area to avoid overcrowding. We hope you can appreciate we are still keen to minimise the risk of overcrowding and the finish area is on a narrow country lane.

Hickory’s is one mile from Wilmslow town centre, an approx 15 minute walk.
