The Nike Outlet store have been in touch with news of some free events next month:
Hello, I am Anthony Robertson and I am the Assistant Head Coach at Nike Cheshire Oaks. I am emailing to ask if any of your runners would like to be involved in a free running event we are hosting on the 12th August, with 3 distance disciplines — 2.5km, 5km, and 10km.
Usually these distance events would require an entry or admin fee, ours does not. This presents a great opportunity to the runners of Wirral and Cheshire to benefit from either a new experience of running in an event either for the first time, using it to test themselves in an already accomplished distance, or challenge themselves to run harder and further than before in a competitive environment.
The event itself is being run by a professional race day orgainiser, and there will be free bibs and medals for all runners. That, coupled with the fact that there will be free refreshments, running advisors and personal trainers on site to assist or dish out advice should make it a great day for all involved. I have attached the map of the route and the information posters for you.
The 5 and 10k start at 11am, the 2.5k starts at 1pm. Please arrive in plenty of time beforehand.

With a high standard of runners, partly due to this race being part of the Cheshire Grand Prix series, and on what was a drizzly night some great performances in the green vest
which saw all Helsby runners comfortably in the first half of the field and with the overall team position of 6th from 21 teams so well done all.

Another great evening for running and a decent green turn-out. With a lot of talk of ‘fast course this’ before the event, the pressure was certainly on. And there were some fine results, with possibly 4 PBs on the night – not sure. Ian was certainly close to his best times, all set when he was considerably younger (and with more hair?). I got one (albeit a soft one, since it’s ages since I’ve run a 5k, and still short of the magic sub-20). The fast improving Alex shaved some more off his previous. Ed too?
