New race – Warrington Way 40

warrington-wayOur friends at Lymm Runners have just announced the Warrington Way 40 Mile Trail Race is open for entries. The Warrington Way is a 40 mile circular walking/running route in Cheshire, circumnavigating the town of Warrington. It starts and finishes in Lymm, and goes anticlockwise around the town of Warrington.

Most of the Way is off-road, on footpaths, field crossings, farm tracks, canal towpaths and the like but there are some sections on road and some major road crossings to be aware of. Much of the route is in the Cheshire countryside but the Way takes in the area’s industrial and transport heritage – including crossing the Bridgewater Canal, the Manchester Ship Canal, the St Helens Canal, and the River Mersey; the West Coast mainline and Liverpool to Manchester mainline railways; and the M6, M62, and M56 motorways!

You can enter the Warrington Way either as a solo runner (planning to do the full 40 miles) or as a relay team of 4 (each doing one 10 mile stage). More information and entry at www.lymmrunners.org.uk/warrington-way.

High Legh 10k — 26 Feb 2012

Chris Lees, from our new friends at Lymm Runners has been in touch. He’s also Race Director for the High Legh 10k…

Hi all – As the new Race Director for the 2012 event, I thought I would email the many running and athletic clubs local to the race direct. Please find attached a PDF with details about the race, which is now in its 5th year.

I hope you can distribute the details amongst your club and it would be great to see you on the start line in February. It is a very friendly community event with a fast road course predominantly on quiet country lanes. We are also putting together a decent goody bag for your efforts.

Many regards,
Chris Lees, Race Director
