Description

2019's Birchwood 10k will be the 36th year of this race and just gets better with age!

Whether you are a runner who needs the next challenge, a ParkRun regular or a club runner looking to race against team mates and go for a prize, this race is for you.

We see runners from all over the North-west coming back for a suberbly organised, chip-timed race on traffic free roads around the Birchwood business park area and the rural lanes of Croft village. 

We are endevouring to make the Birchwood 10K the Greenest and most Sustainable race in the North West:

  • You are encouraged to bring your own bottles - water tanks will be made available for you to fill up from.
  • We will supply plastic bottles of water but they will be in a closed recycling loop.
  • Car-sharing will be made easy through the use of a lift-share website
  • The race T-shirt is made from 100% recycled fabric and made in factories where the welfare & fair pay of workers is assured by the Wear Fair Foundation.
  • Your finishers' medal will be a unique piece, made in the UK from sustainable materials (more to be revealed later - see our FaceBook page for updates: search "Birchwood 10K").
  • We are avoiding sending out printed paperwork by using the new on-site check-in system provided by our race timers.

The race also boasts one of the most generous and extensive prize lists around, with over £2000 given away in prizes!

Get the kids involved too with our Fun Run just before the main race. With just 80 entries available for the fun run, make sure you grab your spot!
