The Marple Fire Fighters have organised a charity 10K Race on Saturday 8th September. You don’t have to be a great runner to participate, runners of all levels are welcome. The run starts at Rose Hill, at the beginning of the Middlewood Way. It is advised for runners to gather from 9:30am and you will need to register before 10.30am if registering on the day. The approximate start time is 11am.

The course takes the competitors down the Middlewood Way, just past High Lane, then a gentle climb up onto the Macclesfield Canal and back to Marple. As the trail path is not very wide, runners are set off in a staggered start, in groups of 15 or so, depending on their predicted times. The finish line will be at Marple Social and Forces Club on Lime Kiln Lane, where participants can stop for a well-earned complimentary pint and sandwich.

The cost to enter is £12.50 and you book your place here.
