Entries are now open for the 11th Anniversary edition of the High Legh Robert Moffat Memorial 10k Race on Sunday 4th March, 2018, starting at 11am. Do get your entries in quickly as places are snapped up very quickly. (Two thirds of the places have gone already!)
The 10th Anniversary race last year was particularly exciting as, despite a deluge before the start, the race was won in record time of just 32.35 by James Wignall. The beauty of the race is that whilst it regularly attracts elite athletes, many use it to set a personal best or to beat the one hour mark or to raise sponsorship or simply to make it their first ever event. There is plenty of time to get into shape before next March and in the New Year Lymm Runners will be running their beginners course which is always so popular. So why not make this your first event if you have never run before? And the great thing is you can simply walk from home to the start !
You can view more detailed information on our dedicated race website at Race Website CLICK HERE where you will be able to enter. Do be quick, though. as many were left disappointed last year as it filled up in a record time of 7 weeks!
The course is the same, starting and finishing at High Legh Primary School and mostly on quiet, flat country lanes. We are also keeping the improvements of the recent years including chip timing, the start/finish on the road outside the school, the fabulous finisher’s technical running T-shirt in the goody bag, along with lots of other stuff provided by our sponsors together with a medal for all finishers. We are proud that this is so much better value than many other races and we have even held our entry fees once again.
There will also be 14 prizes for the various categories and we await with bated breath to see whose names will be on the fabulous permanent trophies - the High Legh 10k Robert Moffat Memorial Trophy for the overall winners (male and female) and the Costcutter Team Trophy.
The School PTA will again be providing their magnificent refreshments for sale – hot and cold drinks, cakes, bacon butties and the like.
The race is organised jointly by High Legh Community Association and Lymm Runners, and is very much a community event, with funds raised being used to benefit High Legh residents. There will be a various training events arranged in the lead up to the race including “Run the Route” sessions and more details will be on the race website in due course.
We look forward to seeing you in March – do get your entry in soon as places won't be available for long!"
