This is one hilly half marathon!

The race begins and ends at the Macclesfield Leisure centre.  The first climb out of Prestbury doesn't seem too bad, but the second main climb at the 10 mile stage is two miles up hill and hard work at that stage of the race.  The first ladies prize was 100 cheque and 100 in Running Bear vouchers, 2nd was 50 and F35 40.  The standard is not as high as say Wilmslow and so these prizes can be quite winnable.

Plenty of loos, water stations, well marshalled and well run event with a greta technical T-shirt.
