There is a feed station briefing on Saturday 15th July (11am to 12 noon) at the Macron Station, BL6 6JW, everyone welcome if you want to attend.

Our water station is on "The Lane"
From Atherton go up Newbrook Road to the lighs, over the lights to the next step of lights.  Turn left onto Hulton Lane A6145.  At the bottom turn left and next right up Beaumont Road to the top.  We are on Chorley New Road (A673).

The station will open at 11am to set up.  We need 25 volunteers at any one time during the day.  It is going to be very busy.

Please let me know if you are able to help.  Some of us are staying all day but you are free to come and go as you please.  It would be helping to get an idea of what times people are expecting to attend

If you have not been entering any of the Road Races this year you are still more than welcome to attend and enter this event, it will be a fun exclusive club night just like the Track mile was.

Clue 1.      The race will be a distance between 1 mile and 6.5 miles

If your thinking of entering this event please leave a comment so I can try and work out approximate
numbers.  Thanks

Eddie’s Revenge fell race Wed 28th Jun 19:30

The next race on the A&T champs is a return to an old favourite with Eddie’s Revenge, organised by Middleton Harriers.  Entry is £5 on the day, or free with a homemade cake.  It’s relatively short at 3.8m and whilst there’s no hand-on-knees stuff, it is quite “undulating” with quite a bit of climb and a good short, steep descent, however it’s in a relatively enclosed area, mostly on trails and well-marked/marshalled, so accessible to all.
There’s a great video documentary that I’d not seen before, in which you can see several A&T members “enjoying” the race last year.
Full details can be found at the page at the link below:
As always, if you have any questions then please get in touch.
