NMAC Half Marathon Championship 2019.
The first NMAC Championship event of 2019!!!

A scenic road race through rural countryside, passing through the Cheshire villages of Dunham on the Hill, Mouldsworth, Manley, Alvanley and Helsby. Accurately measured (certificate number 11/071, measured 2 January 2012), with 170m of climbing.

Helsby Community Sports Centre, very short walk to the start line. Start time 10:30am (slightly earlier than our traditional 11am start). Finishes at Hornsmill Primary School (300m walk back to start).

To enter the NMAC Championship and to qualify for a medal you MUST indicate this on the online entry form – it is obvious when you enter so no excuses, no exceptions!

Congratulations Steve!!!!!

At the Northern Athletics Open Meeting at Sheffield on the 1st December newly turned M55 Steve Linsell of Leeds City AC and NMAC broke the British indoor record with 1.66m and also hence the Northern Masters Club Record. The British record had stood for 19 years, but knowing Steve as we do I am sure it won't be long before he surpasses his own mark!
