HOW TO TRAIN FOR YOUR SPRING MARATHON DURING THE WINTER MONTHS: WITH OUR AMBASSADORS!
The famous 4 day running event, the Tour of Tameside is back for 2018, with prices frozen from 2017!
The multi-day running event that was brought back to Tameside in 2015 is proving to be one of the most important events in the North West running calendar and as so, Sports Tours International are delighted to honour the 2017 entry prices for the 2018 edition.
Graham Jackson, Race Director for Sports Tours International said;
“We are really excited to open up entries for the 218 Tour of Tameside today. We have such an attractive and important event now that throughout the year we are always receiving emails and calls asking to open up entries…so we have done so, two weeks earlier than last year – and we have frozen the prices from 2017 too!”
The 2018 Tour of Tameside will once again begin with Stage 1 the ‘X-Trail 10k’ on Thursday evening the 14th of June in Daisy Nook and Park Bridge Country Parks, Ashton before moving onto Stage 2, on Friday evening June 15th, with the infamous ‘Hell on the Fell Run’ in Active Copley Leisure Centre, Stalybridge.
Stage 3 is Saturday morning the 16th of June where runners will take on the 13.1 mile ‘Hero Half Marathon’ along the Longdendale Trail before the final day, Stage 4 on Sunday morning June 17th when the Tour will finish with the classic ‘Dr Ron Hyde 7 Mile’ (formerly know as the Hyde 7 and now named after the founding father of the Tour of Tameside Dr Ron Hill MBE) – a seven mile road run where many friends and family will line the route to welcome the competitors home.
The Tour recognises that not all runners wish to run all four days back-to-back, so Sports Tours International have again opened up ‘Single Stage Entries’ for those wishing to run one, two or three of the individual days. The option encourages beginners and those who wish to run shorter to still become a part of the Tour of Tameside.
With around 1,000 runners participating in 2017, Sports Tours International is confident that another increase will be seen in entries and that can only be good for the event and the Tameside region.
