Race information will be sent by email pre-event and all your race details can be found within your online profile. Once registered login to check race updates, news, partner offers and more.

You will be using our Chip on Bib race numbers and it is important these are displayed on your outer garment to ensure 1) We can see your race number when running and 2) To help with the timing system to read your time.


The run will kick off at 10am

Please note that the start of the run will be staggered to avoid too much congestion on the towpaths. However this will not affect your time as our Results Base timing team will record your time from when you cross the starting mat.

Toilets will be within the event hub and ensure you go with plenty of time to spare to avoid long queues.

There will be marshals around the course to support and encourage you.

Please take care when running around the course as this is public land and local residents will be out and about. Please always stay on the left unless otherwise guided.

If wearing headphones please make sure you can hear other people around you and marshal instructions.


Results will be displayed on our Results Base Timing screen so after crossing the finish line you can check out your instant results.

These go live to our website and you will receive an email update once the race is over.

Everyone will receive a super cool medal

A fun, small scale event

Volunteers and staff were great on the day in terms of helping and cheering.

Route was enjoyable and had a few hills to make it a good challenge for beginners!

Snacks and drinks provided as well as finishers medal and timing printouts!

Brilliant event

Completed the 10k Winter Warmer Run on sunday 2nd February in Manchester.
Brilliant event and very well organised from registration to bag drop and the course itself.
Loved the addition of being able to check my finish time instantly from a screen!
Will definitely return next year and recommend to friends.

Brilliant run well organised

This is an amazing race with some fantastic scenery. The event was well organised from the off with the race organisers doing an amazing job in revving up the atmosphere. The run itself is lovely mix of undulating hills and flats with just enough to test even the most ardent of runners. Dare I say that you will get a PB on this course???? Well there certainly is no reason not too that's for sure!!!! The marshals were fantastic throughout and all in all a great experience. We'll worth the effort despite the weather
