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. 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 race doubled as the English Half Marathon Championships.
Race organiser Nick Bishop added: “We plan keener pricing this year to make our Sunday 24 March event accessible to more people. We’re working hard to make the occasion even better value for money but still make substantial contributions to support local sporting groups."
Many new runners or those who have progressed via parkrun have cut their teeth over the classic 13.1 distance at the Waters Wilmslow Half Marathon. So we will be equally delighted to welcome back our regular runners and new half marathoners.
