Sale Harriers Summer Sizzler 5km runs

Information on a series of Summer 5k "Sizzlers" organised by Sale Harriers in Wythenshawe park. I've run these in the past and they are well organised races, good for testing your progress at parkrun.

Thanks to all at Sale Harriers for their continued support of South Manchester parkrun.

Sale Sizzlers START/FINISH: The track, Wythenshawe Park, South Manchester M23 0AB. It's a fast, flat, tarmac (mostly), traffic-free course within the park.



South Manchester parkrun – 18th June 2011

Dear runners, the South Manchester parkrun will be going ahead as usual this weekend, 18th June. We are awaiting confirmation from the park wardens before confirming which course we will be operating. The choice of course depends on whether or not the park is cleared from the weekends concert in time for Saturday. Further updates will be posted during the week here and on our facebook group.

Important Update – 11th June run cancelled

Dear runners, we have been advised by the park wardens that due to the concert on Satruday 11th June there will be a large number of vehicles and other park visitors using the footpaths within the park. As we would be using the alternative lap route this has the potential to create some serious safety issues. After consulting with the team we have decided that for reasons of safety there will be no run on the 11th June. The next run will be on 18th June.
A list of alternative runs in the North West can be found at:



Change of route for June parkruns

Due to an event taking place in Platt fields park we will be operating our alternative 3 lap course on the following dates:

Saturday June 4th

Saturday June 18th

We will be back to our main route from Saturday June 25th.


Run Free @ South Manchester parkrun

Our aim is to spread the word about what a fantastic initiative parkrun is and how it gets runners of all ages and abilities together at 9am every Saturday morning throughout the UK.

For the event we are encouraging everyone to dress up, bring some cakes and generally have a good time with your fellow runners.

The parkrun that embraces runfree the most (so we want to see lots of runners in fancy dress, cakes, biscuits, that extra bit of sparkle!) will receive a special prize –PARKRUN PLUS!! Two weeks after runfree we will invite Olympian Liz Yelling to start your event, provide product and medals for all your runners, a bag drop area, refreshments, photographer, pacers and much more!!
