Runners ready to run Rochdale!
- 14 August 2015
Over 1,000 runners have already registered and remaining places are filling up fast.
The 10K route leaves the Esplanade along Entwisle Road, before heading towards Milnrow via Albert Royds Street. It then heads up Buckley Hill Lane, turning near its end before returning to the Town Hall. The half marathon does the same route except the turning point is by Kingsway Business Park and is a two-lap course. The fun run is a flat one-mile course that heads out along Entwisle Road and turns back just after Rochdale Leisure Centre.
The traffic-free courses have some good straight sections and are reasonably flat, making them relatively fast. There are over £2,800 of prizes available including cash for the first 3 men and women in the Half Marathon and 10K, plus bonus time related prizes.
Those that have already entered can collect race numbers on Saturday 22 August at Number One Riverside, Smith Street in Rochdale from 10am-4pm. New entries are also being taken there on the Saturday. Numbers can also be collected on race day from Rochdale Town Hall from 7am to 8.30am.
For details of all three runs - including maps and a video of the course – and to find out how to enter, visit www.rochdale.gov.uk/run The site also features advice for those who are running in support of charities.
