The Macclesfield Harriers & Athletic Club provides a variety of activities such as Track & Field, Road Running, Fell Running and Cross Country. As well as this the club organises races every year. For more information please visit:

The course which isIMG_4191 hosted at Macclesfield Leisure Centre is described as “A challenging and rewardingIMG_4174 route through the leafy back roads of East Cheshire” and despite the heat on Sunday all participants certainly gave it 100%.

Everybody Sport and Recreation are proud to congratulate three Lifeguards from Macclesfield Leisure Centre who took part in the Half Marathon, Jacob Roberts who came 8th place with a time of 01:23:19, Scott Wilson who is a pace runner completed in 01:29:56 and Alannah Birtwistle who completed in 01:59:25.

Everybody supported the event, providing information on the variety of activities we offer at our facilities and free passes to use at any of our 15 centres. We also provided Smoothie and Bubble bikes, which went down a treat with both the adults and children, the bikes are a fantastic way of encouraging children and adults to eat healthy and exercise in a fun way.

The Smoothie Bike and Bubble bike are available to hire, for more information please send all enquiries to [email protected]
