Registration is in the Wheelton Village Hall, nr. Chorley, Lancs PR6 8HJ
Well I thought the Norden 6 Mile Road Race was the hilliest road race in the North West, that was until I ran this one.
Registration is at the Wheelton Village Hall. Its a bit tucked away and parking is tight so leave plenty of time to get there.
The race starts with a 1 mile climb up hill. After that there doesn't seems to be any flat, you just go up or down like a yo yo. So much for my plan to run it at even pace! There is one drinks station.
The final mile is down the hill you ran up at the start.
There were plenty of loos, registration was efficient and there was free hotpot, tea and coffee at the end. Plenty of prizes too.
A very well organised race with some top quality runners. Not for the feint hearted as its a real toughie!
