Sutton Six runs
Sutton Six 10K and Fun Run Sunday 20 September 2015
This year’s Sutton Six races will be held again on the traditional 3rd Sunday of the month. There will be the usual two races, the 10 Km race and the Fun Run (c. 2.5 Km). Courses are the same as in previous years.
The 10K starts in Belle Vue Lane opposite Middlecroft, does a loop of Guilden Sutton Lane/Hare Lane/Belle Vue Lane coming back past the start point and then heading out again down Guilden Sutton Lane/Hare Lane down to the Vets on the A51 and then down the wide pavement all the way down to Wicker lane, to come back into the village and finish at the Village Hall. Race start time will be 11:00.
This year we have introduced chip timing (now a feature of all our races except fun runs). This will give you your result within minutes of the finish of the race via email.
At 12:15 the Fun Run will start in Hilltop Road. This goes out via Arrowcroft Road, turning left on the pavement along School Lane up to Oaklands. Running all the way around Oaklands, back out to School Lane and then round once more before turning into Hilltop Road to get back to the finish at the Village Hall. Entry to the Fun Run is on the day only at the Village Hall (£2), from about 09:00, and there will be an award to all finishers.
Refreshments will be available in the Village Hall, provided as usual by the local Cubs group.
As happened last year our local council’s Safety Advisory Group requires us to put a temporary road closure in place to cover the start of the 10K race in Belle Vue Lane. We will need to put a road closure in place on Belle Vue Lane for about 10 minutes, i.e. from approx. 10:50 to 11:00, whilst the runners are moved to the start location and the race is started. We will restrict this closure to about 50 metres either side of Middlecroft up and down Belle Vue Lane. Middlecroft itself will also have a road closure but only from the junction with Belle Vue Lane up to the first houses. This will be used as an assembly area for the runners prior to the start. Middlecroft and all the houses in it will remain accessible at all times from the Oaklands end. We apologise in advance for any short term disruption but hope that local residents will bear with us for the short period whilst we get the race underway.
Internet entry is available for the 10K race from West Cheshire AC website at www.westcheshireac.co.uk/roadracing/Sutton6 or from the Community Association ‘What’s On’ pages at www.guildensutton.org.uk
Hope to see you in September either running in the races or cheering on the runners

Most of the race and fun run results from 1982 onwards can be viewed amongst the Race Archives on WCAC’s website. Do any residents have copies of the two missing years?
