Running Bear Supporting Local Events

On 24th March this year, we had great fun at the Wilmslow Running Festival. As you can see, The Bear was very active and made many new friends. The team also met lots of lovely new people and saw some awe-inspiring running performances.

For the first year there was a 10k and a Fun Run as well as the iconic Wilmslow Half Marathon. All courses are scenic, flat and great for PB’s. The chances are high that you’ll be pleased with your performance and love the atmosphere!

Next year, the Festival will be on Sunday 15th March 2020. Entries are already open, at 2019 prices.

The route will be similar to last year. The race will start in Alderley Edge village, near De Trafford,  on Saturday morning (18th May) and will follow a clearly marked out route that will finish in the park after taking the lead ahead of ‘The May Fair Parade’ along London Road, where the pavements will be lined with supporters to cheer you on to the finish line.

No Cost:

The race is free to enter, however we are raising donations again for East Cheshire Hospice, there will be collection buckets available for your donations when you collect your race number at the registration desk.

Who Can Enter:

Runners of all ages are welcome and there will be gold, silver and bronze medals for the fastest three males and female runners in each of the age categories.  These will be presented in the park on the main stage.

Please pass on details of the Fun Run to your friends and family, we encourage runners of all abilities and there will be a goody bag for every entrant!


The May Fair theme this year is ‘Space’ to celebrate 50 years since the moon landings.  Why don’t you run in fancy dress?  But don’t forget to bring a change of clothes so you can relax after the run and enjoy the rest of the day at the May Fair.  Visit for further information.

Good Luck Everyone, let the registrations begin!
