Race Report

Sunday 7th July saw Northwich’s 4th Festival of Running reaching record entries. Over 700 runners descended on Carey Park in the glorious sun shine to enjoy the 2k, 5k and 10k trail events.

We are incredibly grateful to Concise Technologies, Pritchard Jones Wealth Planning, Roberts Bakery and Waitrose for their generous contributions towards the race finishers goodies.

Likewise, the event was hugely enhanced by the presence of Rosebank Sports, Your Sports Therapists, Mid Cheshire Catering and The Hangout Nutrition Bar.

Our 2k fun run was a real highlight, incredibly well attended and a pleasure to see parkrun junior regulars storming the finish line. Many senior runners joined the field just to gain the extra medal but the juniors certainly showed them how it’s done.

Our 5 and 10k undulating courses failed to concern either field despite climbing temperatures for the third year running. Notable performances in both fields but a worthy shout out to Nathaniel Pritchard Jones for his 18th Place finish at only 14 years of age. We are incredibly grateful to Pritchard Jones Wealth Planning Ltd for supplying the fantastic drinks bottles which were included as part of the finishers pack.
