Course Details

It’s a fantastic course with very little elevation gain. Starting on South Downs Road the race heads north west towards Bowdon Cricket & Hockey Club before turning right onto Marlborough Road, passing Altrincham Grammar and then turning right at the Bowdon traffic lights on Ashley Road.

The race then travels along Ashley Road, past the clock tower and over the railway heading straight down the road past all the shops and restaurants before heading out into the Ashley countryside. Just after 4km the route forks left down Castle Mill Lane, until a right turn down Back Lane just before 6km.

At the end of Back Lane the race turns right onto Tanyard Lane and left onto Castle Mill Lane again heading the opposite direction. This is where the lead runners will be visible to the main field of runners with the road split into 2. At the junction the route takes a left turn onto Cow Lane, following the road under the M56 and into Ashley village. At The Greyhound Pub the route goes right onto the Knutsford road, passing Ashley Station and then turning right into the South Gate of Ashley Hall.

The race then continues along the private lane all the way to Ashley Hall and the finish.
