The inaugural ‘Nantwich 10k Road Race’ will take place on Sunday 20th March 2022 at 9:30am. The race has been organised by Mike Stevens, Founder of Nantwich Running Club.
The route will take participants in a 10 kilometre (6.2 miles) loop from outside Nantwich Town Football Club, on closed roads, towards Ravensmoor and finish on the playing field of Malbank High School off Waterlode.
Each finisher will receive a specially designed medal and a goodie bag. There are also prizes for the Top 3 Male and Female finishers and several age-related awards, along with prizes for the top local finisher living within the CW5 post code area and the Under 20 winner.
The event is eagerly anticipated and all running slots sold out in just three days, so no further places are available.
The Nantwich Running Club’s new “Couch To 5K” programme, in partnership with Nantwich Town Football Club, has also been a great success with over 75 local residents taking part. The programme began on 8th January, continuing each Saturday until 5th March. The programme is designed for people who have little or no running experience or running or exercise and takes them through a series of chatty 20-30 minute walking and jogging sessions. The programme aims to improve the personal fitness and general health & wellbeing of participants.
Nantwich Running Club was launched in March 2021 by Willaston runner Mike Stevens and now has over 350 members.
Mike Stevens, Founder of Nantwich Running Club, said: “It’s great to be able to put Nantwich firmly on the map as a running community. We’re proud to be able to support runners from complete beginners through to highly competitive event winning athletes.”
