Sunday 23rd September 2018

​incorporating the Macc 5k and Fun Run

A race for the community

Unlike many races, the organisers are all volunteers and all the profits are donated to our selected charities.

For 2018, we are supporting The Rossendale Trust, Just Drop-In and Cre8 who all work in the local community.

The 2017 race donated over £10,000 to East Cheshire Hospice, The Rossendale Trust and Just Drop-In.

Individual runners also had their own sponsors and raised even more.

You can order a race t-shirt when you enter (up to a month before race day).
