The races start and finish on the playing fields at Lymm High School, Oughtrington Lane, Lymm, WA13 0RB.

The race timings are as follows:

  • 10.30am – Children’s Fun Run
  • 11.00am – 5km Trail Race

The Children’s Fun Run takes place on Lymm High School playing fields and is a course of approximately 1 mile or 1.6km.  Parents or carers are welcome to accompany/support their children during the fun run if needed.  All profits from the fun run go to the Woodland Trust.  New for this year is a woodland theme where we are encouraging entrants to dress up as a woodland animal.  A prize will be awarded for the best-dressed boy and girl!

The route for the 5km and 10km races starts on the running track on the playing fields at Lymm High School, goes around the playing fields, along a footpath through Helsdale Wood, around Spud Wood and then returns to the playing fields to finish.  The 5km race is one lap of the above route and the 10km race is two laps of the same route.
