Logistics and schedule

You must arrive at least one hour before the start and earlier if you can. Most of the 4,000+ runners arrive between 9.00-9.45am resulting in them getting stuck in traffic congestion. If you can arrive before 8.30am you will “beat the crush” and experience little or no traffic congestion and you will be able to get one of the best parking spaces. You will arrive at the start line more relaxed and have a better chance of a good race.

How to get there

Some parking is available at the Race HQ at Wilmslow RUFC, the cost is £2 please have the correct change ready.

Further parking is available at the Waters Corporation (our race sponsor) on the A538 as you enter Wilmslow from the West. The cost is £3 please have the correct change ready. This car park is approximately half a mile from the race start and quarter of a mile from the race finish.

Parking is allowed on some of the neighbouring streets but please note many streets have parking restrictions on Race Day and there is absolutely no parking in Kings Road which is the road leading to the Rugby Club HQ and where the race starts.

Please note that Kings Road will be closed at 10am or possibly earlier and there will be no access to the race HQ or the Start by vehicle after this time.

Bus and Train
Wilmslow has a railway station and the main town centre bus stop is at Bank Square, the race starts at Kings Road. Allow ten to fifteen minutes to walk to the start.
