HIGH LEGH ROBERT MOFFAT MEMORIAL 10K CANCELLED
We are very sorry to have to announce that, following a detailed inspection of the course and an assessment of the weather, the race scheduled for 11am this Sunday, 4th March will not be taking place on the grounds of safety for the runners, marshals and spectators.
This is a big disappointment for all of us given the number of people and organisations that are all geared up for the race and the inevitable costs already incurred (various suppliers of services, shirts, medals etc). Whilst we cannot guarantee to rearrange the race we are going to try and do this in May but it is a complex process as so many are involved (road closures, medical cover, chip timing, toilets, barriers, venue, marshals, clashing events etc) and we will let you know as soon as possible if an alternative date is practical and the arrangements that would apply.
We so appreciate your support for the race whether you have run in all 10 or this is your first time and we want to reassure you that we left this decision as late as we sensibly could.
With best wishes
Race Committee of High Legh Community Association and Lymm Runners
High Legh 10K
The race is organised jointly by Lymm Runners and the Community Association in High Legh, and together we achieve a really great local event.
This small, friendly 10K race – officially listed as The Robert Moffat Memorial Race – consistently gets great reviews for its warm community welcome and excellent organisation.
The High Legh 10K site provides complete information about the race; its route, organisation, history, results, contacts – and there are loads of fantastic pictures from previous years.
Photographs from previous events are available for free download for non-commercial use.
Training For The HL10K
Lymm Runners offer plenty of training opportunities to support runners of all abilities wanting to take part in the High Legh 10K.
In addition to the strength and speedwork session on a Tuesday evening, the slower, longer runs on a Sunday morning, and the general club road runs on Thursday evening, we also organise HL10K-specific training!
Designed for new runners – or those returning after a longer break, this will start early in the New Year. The course provides 8 weeks of structured training to gradually increase your fitness and distance in the lead-up to the event. It also provides loads of encouragement, support and is a great way to meet other like-minded runners.
