Mast Race 10K – Winter route

This race to the summit of Winter Hill, the highest television transmitting antenna in the UK, is the perfect opportunity to test your running technique over a variety of mixed terrain and elevation in this out and back run up the summit.

This fully signposted and marshaled route begins at the Smithills School Pavilion. Runners will race 5k up to the summit, take in the views before rounding the summit marker and making their way 5k back to the finish line, cheered on by their fans and spectators. The race climbs 1027ft to the highest elevation of 1448ft, giving runners the opportunity to hone both their uphill and downhill running.

    Can’t fault one bit!
    This was my first mast 10k so didn’t know what to expect as I’m not a fast runner.
    I spent most of the run with the fantastic back marker who kept me going till the end, friendly man with a great sense of humour.
    Well organised from start to finish, Friendly owners & volunteers.
    Would recommend this run definitely x

    Did the 10K in 2019

    Out of May hundred events I’ve ran, I’d positively say that it is the most friendly atmosphere I’ve experienced and I’ll definitely be back because of that. Marshall’s are so helpful and the route was great too.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Very well organised and although it's a really tough challenge , I thoroughly enjoyed it. Will be doing it again
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    A great race. A real test with the 5k up but the pay off on the way down. . Friendly atmosphere and great organisation.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Tough 10k race but got a great sense of achievement when I finished. The trail section was tricky and slippery, but for my 1st taste of trail it was 'enjoyable'.
