QRC race results 30 Jan:


An undulating 5km course on tarmac paths within Heaton Park.Starting in the centre of the park, the first 2km consists of a flat section around the Heaton Park lake. Between 2 and 3 kilometres, some challenging hills take you to outside Heaton Hall with spectacular views of Manchester. A loop through the forest area behind the hall follows, before a welcome downhill section to complete the lap.

The 5k is 1 lap, 10k is 2 laps, and Half Marathon is 4 laps with an additional out and back section at the start.
