A fantastic rural Cheshire course with a full road closure. The course is scenic, well marshalled and last year provided many runners with Personal Bests. The race incorporates the most up to date integrated chip-timing, free parking, free to download photographs and amazing bespoke medals. This race is hugely popular with some of the fastest runners in the region as well as those testing themselves over the distance for the first time and everyone is welcome.

 

This Covid-19 secure race will have a waved start and you will be set off in a group based on your predicted finishing time.

 

Race numbers and chips will be posted and race instructions will be emailed approx 7 days before race day.

 

 

There will not be a drink station at the midway point.  Runners requiring drinks must provide their own in accordance with the new Run Britain guidelines.

Sports Tournament

Organising a fundraising tournament is not only fun but it’s a great way to introduce kids to new sports they may not thought of trying before. It is also a really inclusive way of bringing family, friends and communities together to support a good cause.

Tournaments could be organised through:
  • A local community organisation,
  • One local team working on their own
  • Several local teams working in collaboration
  • A local league itself
  • Or independently

Depending on your sport you need to work out how your tournament will work.

Shortened and reduced versions of the main games are usual. For instance Five a Side football 10mins each way etc. To maintain interest try to avoid anything that involves early knockouts for teams. Keep it simple and easy to understand with plenty going on and lots of action for the contestants.

Different types of sports could include:
  • Netball
  • Football
  • Hockey
  • Rugby
  • Rounders
  • Relay race
You may also wish to present awards for specific things such as:
  • Top scorers – Either as a team or individually – often called the golden boot.
  • Player of the tournament – Chosen either by ballot of all those taking part or based on the judgement of a coach or similar.
  • Best sportsmanship – the team with the best attitude to the game and their opponents.
  • Best supported team – a great way to encourage your supporters to cheer on your team.
