Watersons Hale 10K Runner

All Hail Hale 10K

The Watersons Hale 10K will return this year after a successful inaugural staging in 2022...

The second edition of the Watersons Hale 10K is just over three weeks away but if you feel 'race ready' then there is till time to sign up and join over 1000 runners as they stream through the centre of Hale, South Manchester on 19 February.

Starting in the picture-book village of Hale, the race heads out over the iconic railway crossing and takes centre stage through the main village high street. The route then heads out into the picturesque countryside of Ashley, weaving through country lanes, past the much-loved Greyhound Pub before entering the south gates of Ashley Hall and finishing in the its spectacular grounds.

Commenting on the course, organisers said: "It’s a fantastic course that benefits from a full road closure from start to finish. The opportunity to run through a traffic free Hale village is not one to be missed, and judging by the lively euphoric response in the races first year, 2023 is going to be a great occasion."

It has been announced that 2022's race winners, Ross Millington and Sophie Wood have signed up for a return in 2023, both outstanding athletes they set blistering course record times of 30:56 and 35:25 respectively.

Taking place alongside the 10K is the Ashley Hall 3K which boasts a fantastic flat course that is traffic free and extends round the grounds of Ashley Hall along fields and their private lane. This race mixes all ages and abilities, giving each runner a professional race experience that is first and foremost, a lot of fun with an impressive bespoke medal waiting to be received when crossing the finish line.

In 2022, the event raised over £2,000 for The Toy Appeal and this year £2 from every entry will go direct to same cause - a very worthy reason to get signed up, be part of this great event and enjoy some ‘feel good’ vibes on the day!
