Entries open for the 2020 Wilmslow Running Festival

Wilmslow Start 2

Following the success of this year's event, the rebranded Wilmslow Running Festival returning next year bringing a festival of all things great about running!

Entries are now open for the 2020 races which will make place on Sunday Match 15th.

The ever popular and prestigious Waters Wilmslow Half Marathon, which has regularly been voted one of the top road races in the UK by readers of "Runner's World" magazine, is now in its 36th year.

Following their introduction this year, the festival will once again include a 10k and fun run.

Nick Bishop said "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!"

For he first time the event is teaming up with two charities - The Christie Charitable Fund, which is committed to revolutionising the fight against cancer by funding world reaching research, treatment and care, education and additional support services and Supportability (formerly Stockport CP) which works to improve life for people with disabilities by enabling them to live as fulfilled and independent life as possible.

The Wilmslow Running Festival is itself a charity and working each year with their charity partners they have has raised well in excess of a million pounds.
