Sandbach Striders

Entries are now open for the Sandbach 10k 2023 sponsored by Butcher & Barlow. 2022 was a complete success, with a few modifications to the course from the Covid affected 2021 event.

Back again for 2023. Last year we moved the race to a new race HQ at the Sandbach Rugby club, and a new course heading out towards Bradwall. The event has consistently been a great success, and we think 2022 will be no different. The 10k race will be held on Sunday 20th August and starts at 10:30.

Price: £18/£16 with UKA membership (up from £16/14). However, for the first 50 entries and/or until the 26th March, we are offering an Early Bird at last years price (£16/£14) so enter now.

We have sold out for the last 4 years, so book now to avoid disappointment

The race features:

  • 10:30 start
  • Mainly closed roads, with short gravel path at start (Course)
  • UKA License Number (UKA License Applied for)
  • Chip-timed
  • Bespoke Medal
  • On-line results
  • Prizes to 1st three males & females*
  • Individual prizes in veterans categories (V40, V50, and V60)*
