Following the success of 2019, the rebranded Wilmslow Running Festival is open for entries. A festival of all things great about running! We are absolutely delighted to be one of the two charities who have partnered up this year.
This year’s race date is Sunday March 15th.
The Headline Act…The iconic Waters Wilmslow Half Marathon. This ever popular and prestigious race, has regularly been voted one of the top road races in the UK by readers of “Runner’s World” magazine…And now in its 36th year!!
Following the introduction in 2019, the festival again has The Stowe Family Law 10k and Running Bear Fun Run.
To bring the whole community together, The Porsche Corporate Challenge is also back! Who is the fittest corporate of them all!
Nick Bishop added…“We introduced keener pricing last year to make the event more accessible to more people. We’re working hard to make the occasion even better value for money and yet still be able to make substantial contributions from the proceeds to support local sporting groups.”
While the majority of the runners are local to the area, the cream of England’s elite distance runners have also raced over the leafy lanes of Wilmslow and Mobberley when the event has regularly staged “The England Half Marathon Championships”.
We are delighted to welcome back our regular runners and equally excited to welcome everyone new to the race…The newer 10k distance being a great way to step up for the parkrun community. Pacers for a variety of time bands will be running. Something for everyone!
