Over 2,500 runners are set to take part as the Altrincham 10K returns next month.

The event, which starts and finishes in the town centre, is back for a third year on Sunday 17th September.

It will once again start close to Evuna on Stamford New Road, before heading up Railway Street, The Downs, St John's Road and then all the way up Hale Road into Hale Barns.

From there, runners will turn left into Shay Lane and then on to Roaring Gate Lane and Whitecarr Lane, before the route hits Hale and Timperley with Clay Lane and Grove Lane.

The last stretch sees runners turn on to Moss Lane, with the finishing line just over the Moss Lane Bridge close to the junction with Stamford New Road.

The following roads will be closed on the day:

Stamford New Road – 6am-12pm
Railway Street, The Downs, St Johns Road, Ashley Road – 9am-9.40am
Hale Road – 9am-10.15am
Shay Lane – 9.10am-10.30am
Roaring Gate Lane – 9.10am-10.45am
Whitecarr Lane, Clay Lane – 9.15am-10.55am
Grove Lane – 9.15am-11.15am
Moss Lane – 9.20am-11.30am

Registration for the event is still open and participants will receive a unique themed medal, be able to access their official result immediately after crossing the finish line, and will also have free access to event photography.

Runners during last year's Altrincham 10k

The Altrincham 10K is again being organised by RunThrough.

Co-founder Ben Green said: “We are delighted to be returning to Altrincham for a third consecutive year and building on the success of the previous year’s events to become a regular fixture of the Altrincham event scene.

"We are extremely grateful to Trafford Council for their support and collaboration, enabling us to put on what is set to be a fantastic event. We can’t wait to welcome all of the runners who will be taking part no matter if this will be their first or fiftieth time running a 10k.”

Cllr Cath Hynes, Trafford Council’s Executive Member for Leisure, Arts, Culture and Heritage, added: “We’re always happy to work with partners like RunThrough. The Altrincham 10k will be a fantastic event to watch but even better to take part in. It will be a great way to keep fit and challenge yourself, and runners can also raise money for a great cause at the same time.”

The Christie Charity will be the official charity partner for this year's race.
