2014 Macclesfield Half Marathon and 5K race report.
Congratulations to everyone who took part in the Macclesfield half marathon / 5k on the 28th September 2014. This year the race saw 685 finishers, with an additional 119 finishers in the 5K race.
Hundreds of spectators gathered at the athletics track to watch the race and enjoy sunshine, creating a real party atmosphere at the finish line. There was an interesting commotion when a cow broke loose onto the course, but the Marshalls managed to steer it back into a field without causing too much of a disruption.
This year Simon Carves were the main sponsor, and Richard Buckley, our Director of Operations, was on hand to present the awards to the race winners.
All profits from the race are donated to charities, and Simon Carves’ contribution helped the race committee make a significant donation to the East Cheshire Hospice. Over the last 12 years the race has raised over £100,000 for good causes.
We are very grateful that in recognition of SCEL's support the race will also be making a donation to Friends of Serenity.
