bulkeley-hill-woodThe championships of the people….

The Time Climb Championships is the 1 mile trail Time Trial aimed at all runners.

The event will invite 50 runners from 25 clubs to face off for Team and individual prizes.

If you fancy picking your wits against the cream of local running talent, you can enter in one of the 150 open spaces.

Not forgetting the future, there will be space for up to 50 juniors (11-16) to enhance their trail and climbing skills.

The location of the 2017 event is Bulkeley Hill Wood in Cheshire.  We would like to thank the National Trust for allowing us to host the event.

The run will ascend the old railway line before weaving its way back down the woods path across the finish at the bottom, where hopefully you will take pride of place on the podium.

Each hour, volunteers will take small groups on FREE guided runs along the Sandstone Trail.

Race Format

The run is a Time Trial, so you will be running against the clock.

Each runner will be set off in short intervals.  You will be asked to provide details of your fastest 1 mile or 5km time*.  You will then be ranked from the slowest to fastest times, with the fastest runners going last.

This will mean there will be many different people on the podium during the competition, lending to a great spectacle.

*Random checks will be carried out to confirm the validity of runners fastest time.

The Sandstone Trail

Bulkeley Hill is on the Sandstone Trail which runs from Whitchurch to Frodsham.

In addition to the race, volunteers will be organising hourly FREE steady runs along the Sandstone Path through Bulkeley Hill, Rawhead and Bickerton Hills.  You should be with people of similar pace due to the ranking of runners.

Details of the Sandstone Trail, Accommodation, pubs and restaurants can be found here.
