Marple Firefighters 10K Trail Run [Saturday 9 September 2017]
« Reply #1 on: July 30, 2017, 02:26:44 PM »
This year's Marple 10K Trial Run is Saturday 9 September 2017

The Race is organised by Marple's Fire Fighters. All funds raised go to the Firefighters Charity which is "the UK's leading provider of services that enhance quality of life for serving and retired fire fighters, fire personnel and their families."



You don't have to be a great runner to participate we have runners of all levels. The run starts at Rose Hill, at the beginning of the Middlewood Way. (See the Map of the race)

Runners usually start gathering 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.

You can obtain the forms from Marple Fire Station or download them from the side bar. If you wish to participate in this years event, fill out an Entry Form and post it with a self addressed stamped envelope to Marple Fire Station (see contact page). Please include £12.50 entry fee.

You can now also register by e-mail, send a completed entry form to mccrackent@manchesterfire.gov.uk and you can then make your payment on the Just Giving Page, www.justgiving.com/marple-10k, once received you will then receive your entry pack. All you need to do then is pick up your race number on the morning of the race from the registration tent.

We now have chip timings, thanks to Crazy Legs, so you can pick up your chip on the morning of the race, before 10:30am.
