The Milltown to Moors Series
A big thank you to all the entrants and army of volunteers for a great event on Sunday, time now for you to train for the Half Marathon and for us to get the event in tip top shape!
“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.
October 2012 saw the reintroduction and great success of the Oldham Half Marathon named The Milltown to Moors Half Marathon to celebrate the Borough of Oldham`s industrial history and wonderful position at the doorstep of the Peak District National Park.
June 2013 will see the introduction of the Oldham 10K and sponsorship is being sought to support the event, the route will be much flatter than the strenuous half marathon and a great way for new runners to build up to the Half Marathon event in October.
Race organiser Oldham Community Leisure is the primary sports and leisure provider in Oldham and is striving to increase participation in physical activities by people of all ages across the borough. By providing it`s skills and resources to organise and promote these events it is expected many more people will be motivated to take part in other future events.
The Oldham Citizens Advice Bureau is the main sponsor of the Oldham Half.
“The Mill Town to Moors Oldham Half Marathon is expected to fast become a fixture in the race calendar, down to its challenging course which features over 1100 foot of ascent. That, coupled with the wonderful views of the Saddleworth villages and the beautiful moorland landscape of the Peak District National Park that lies beyond, will really make this half-marathon a great experience and one which we hope raises awareness of and funds for our charity’s work.”
Jonathan Yates, manager of Oldham CAB
