This is a fun relay event in aid of charity organised by Radcliffe AC. It takes place on the morning of Bank Holiday Monday 27th May. Each member of a 4 person team runs 2x1 mile laps of the park each so it really is open to anyone. Click to find out more.


These take part in Sutton Coldfield on the 18th May, we have been regular participants in this race and ( the ladies ) have come back with medals in the past. Find out how to get involved here.


The track at Leverhulme Park is soon to be dug up and a new track laid in a £200,000 investment by Bolton Council, great news, however it does mean for a few months 1 foot on the track are unable to run the usual track sessions. However the team have planned still to meet and this Wednesday leader Howard Sparke is putting on a hill session, meeting at the same place. Everyone is welcome to join them, free session and free to park.

FOCUS by Andy Staveley

When I was training hard for a marathon a number of years ago, I asked three different coaches for some guidance on a specific aspect of my training. Two of them were top international runners and renowned coaches and the other was the legendary and wise Bruce Tulloh (if you don’t know who he is, look him up). One of the coaches said I should definitely do X and the other advised me to definitely do Y. So I then asked Bruce Tulloh.
