marathon

Following the cancellation of the 2018 Waters Wilmslow Half Marathon on March 18th, due to overnight snow, the rescheduled race will take place on Sunday 24th June.

The organisers have been working hard to put everything in place to make the new date a success and there are a limited number of race places still available.

Please visit www.wilmslowhalfmarathon.org.uk to register and organisers are warning it may be hot, so please be prepared!

At the elite end of the field, the first male and female to finish will receive £1,000 each, plus and additional £500 if the course record is broken. For the men that's 61.52 set in 2004 by Isaac Macharia or 72.02 set by Michelle Ross-Cope for the ladies.

This ever popular and prestigious race, which has regularly been voted one of the top road races in the UK by readers of "Runner's World" magazine, will set off from Kings Road at 10.30am on Sunday 24th June.

Nick Bishop said "As always, please be reminded that a closure will be in force on the day covering all roads in the Kings Road and Altrincham Road area, and on the course itself as it winds towards Mobberley before heading back to finish on Morley Road Wilmslow.

"Even with roads open, please use alternative routes and if you are running, car share and get to the start very early or where possible travel by train."

This year the chosen lead charity for the race is The Christie Foundation
