Trafford Trails 5 Miler 2020
25 June 2020
Race postponed until further notice
Unfortunately due to CV-19 it will not be possible to host the event in June as we had planned, instead we are going to postpone the race in the hope that we will be able to find another date later in the year. Due to sunset getting much earlier from early September the latest we could host an evening event would be towards the end of August. At the moment we think that is unlikely so we are instead hoping for a winter weekend event. We will keep you posted if anything changes.
For now, entries are closed until we have a new date.
After an amazing three years, on [Date to be determined] the TT5 will return for its fourth year.
An easy going, summertime, evening 5 mile trail race through the woodlands and along the river banks of the River Mersey.
The race will be held at Metroviks Rugby Club in Sale and will have a glorious start and finish on the raised banks of the River Mersey.
All profits will be shared with local community youth groups/charities.
