Following on from recent competitions with Cannonball Events (Calderdale Way Ultra & Trailblaster 12), we have teamed up with them once more to offer you another exciting opportunity to win a fabulous prize.

The New Rochdale Half Marathon, 10K and Fun Run

Birthplace of the Co-Op, host of the Rugby League World Cup in 2013 and Le Tour de France last year, located in the North West, between Manchester and the beautiful Yorkshire countryside, there’s much more to Rochdale than you think.

New for 2015, and already one of the highlights of the borough’s sporting calendar – whichever run you choose, you’ll be forever amongst the first to take part, starting and finishing at the stunning Rochdale Town Hall, one of the finest buildings in Europe.

Whether your target is completing a mile run, doing your first 10K, completing your first half marathon or setting a Personal Best, these are the 3 races designed for you. *
