Hopefully returning on Saturday August 15th 2020!
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: We’d normally have opened registration by now, but this year we’re taking a ‘wait and see’ approach, for obvious reasons. 🙁 We’re hopeful that it will be on, and will make a call one way or another by the end of June. Fingers crossed!
After two brilliant years, we have records to be broken, and this year (hopefully) more than 200+ people will be heading off from Marple Rec on Oldknow Road to the Fox Inn pub, at 14:00 on Saturday afternoon, on a challenging 4km trail-run, with each hoping to become our new Champion!
After every kilometre along the way, there’s an optional beer-stop, where participants can stop to drink a pint of delicious craft beer (this year supplied by 3 different local breweries!) – or a gin and tonic option is available.
The finish line is the Fox Inn, where a nice cool beer is included in the entry fee, along with a buffet of food and hopefully some live music. The challenge is to complete the 4km run and drink 3 pints along the way (and the winner will get a prize!), but it’s mainly an excuse to have fun, get out into the countryside, do some exercise, and, of course, drink beer. Oh, and make money for charity – at least £10 per participant goes to local charities, but more if we get more people.
We’re still finalising which local beers will be on our craft beer stops – though Outstanding will definitely be back – and G & T fans will be excited to learn that Didsbury Gin will kindly be providing the Gin! (*Though as with last year, to win the top prize you have to successfully complete the beer run (but a smaller prize will be awarded to our fastest G&T’er too!)
If you have any questions or comments, or want to get in touch for any reason what-so-ever then use this form and one of our team will get back to you ASAP!
