“The Oldham Half Marathon has the potential to become one of the best half marathons in the country” –Andi Jones, a Commonwealth Games athlete who also represented Great Britain at this year’s European Marathon Championships in 2011 and winner of the Oldham half 2012 & 2013
As 2016 rolls around, it’s time to look forward to the new Milltown Race Series!
The ever-popular 7k will be making its return on Sunday 15th May, kicking off at 11am at the Lion’s Den area in the Green Flag award winning Alexandra Park, so make sure you book here early to avoid disappointment.
On the 24th April, our most diverse challenge yet, the Sprint Triathlon, is back by popular demand for a second year, hosted at the Saddleworth Pool & Leisure Centre. Participants will contend with a 400metre swim, 20k bike ride and a 5k run through Uppermill, Diggle, Delph, Scouthead, Austerlands, Lees, Grotton, Lydgate, and Grasscroft. Enter now here to receive our Early Bird 10% discount.
Next in the series is the Oldham 10k event, taking place on Sunday 19th June and starting from the High Street area of the Town Centre of Oldham and takes participants on a journey that will see them cover ground through Oldham town centre, Shaw and Royton – a great idea for Father’s Day!
Finally, the annual Milltown to Moors event returns on Sunday 16th October at 9:30am. This race sold out in 2015 and entries continue to grow each year with a reputation of one the toughest halfs in the UK. Covering 13.1 atmospheric miles, runners will pass through Saddleworth with lovely views of the village and the Peak District’s landscape.
