Run North West is delighted to present the Quarry Bank Trail Race around one of Britain's greatest industrial heritage sites. Quarry Bank, now cared for by the National Trust is the site of one of the best-preserved textile mills of the industrial revolution and tells the complete story of an early Industrial Revolution community. We’re excited to run around the estate surrounding the picturesque 18th century mill just five minutes away from Wilmslow town centre and supported by Wilmslow Striders.
Discover hidden trails and woodland paths on our special route, contrasting with spectacular views of Manchester Airport as the route passes the runway. Consisting of trail, grass, steps, tarmac and gravel the route is perfect for walkers, first time runners and experienced off-roaders. The route is approximately 4.5-miles long and consists of undulating terrain.
Please dress appropriately for trail running through the countryside. Dependent on the weather parts of the course may be muddy with exposed tree roots and other trip hazards potentially on show. Normal running trainers or trail shoes are suitable for the route but please be advised the first mile of the course is ran on road.
This race is supported by Wilmslow Striders who will provide all entry desk and on course marshals. A small yet friendly club open to runners of all abilities.
