Heaton Park Cross Country
South East Lancs League (SELCC) and Manchester League
Heaton Park is a toughy, with plenty of undulations, wind and an uphill finish. Sections run parallel to paths so those in fell shoes possibly have a slight advantage over spike wearers because they can run on the faster tarmac path. Loads of parking (enter through North Gate) and good toilet facilities, plus a burger van with hot drinks. The races start near the Farm Centre.
