Back on Saturday August 14th 2021!

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: We’re hoping to be back on on August 14th 2021 – if it is allowed to be on, it will be on!  We’re opening registrations shortly, but runners will be offered a full refund if it can’t go ahead for whatever reason.


After three brilliant years, we have records to be broken, and this year (hopefully) more than 300+ 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 – literally every extra penny made goes to local charities.

We’re still finalising which local beers will be on our craft beer stops, and we’ll hopefully have some news for G & T runners too! (*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!)
