Marple 10k Trail Race

Marple Runners 10k Trail Race & 2k Family Fun Run

Sunday 16th June 2019


This is our third annual trail race, taking in some of the parks, countryside and sights of Marple. A multi terrain, mainly off road, 10k race starting in Brabyns Park Marple, utilising sections (not the muddy part) of the Marple parkrun course before leaving the park via the canal locks, taking the back roads and trails to Chadkirk, via Marple Hall, then back to Marple along the canal, crossing the iconic Marple Aquaduct before finishing back at the start in Brabyns Park.

In addition, this will be our first '2k Family Fun Run' for ages 4 and above, on a flat course on grass and tracks within Brabyns Park. The Family Fun Run will start and finish before the 10k Trail Race in the same area of the park.
