2022 GUILDEN SUTTON 10km ROAD RACE 

Entries are now open for this year’s West Cheshire AC-organised Guilden Sutton 10k on Sunday September 18th. If you can help out for what is only a couple of hours at a local event on a Sunday morning, please contact Dennis Wall. The earlier you can let Dennis know, the better – as with all of our races, it won’t happen without volunteers, and it can’t go ahead until we know that we have enough volunteers to keep all runners safe and on course. 

And, If you are running the race, the club does require that you provide Dennis with the name of a friend or family member who can help out on the day. 

NORTHERN TRACK & FIELD LEAGUE 

West Cheshire AC compete in the North West Premier Division of the Northern Track & Field League. 

Please can club members in the Under 17 and older age groups let team managers Dave McKay, Jenny Manning and Alan Littler know if they are available to compete on Saturday, August 6th, at Witton Park, Blackburn. The more events we manage to get two members in, the more points we get, the more likely we are to remain in the top flight!
