Organised by Andy Skelhorn, the race is the only one of its kind to start and finish at a brewery and sees seasoned fell racers compete alongside relative novices.
The challenging 9km race attracted 257 runners in 2016, who scaled Kerridge Hill, White Nancy and Nab Head before a descent back to the village in glorious sunshine.
Now in its ninth year, the race attracts runners and spectators from far and wide. Once the gruelling run is over, participants are invited to tuck into helpings of tasty chilli, courtesy of the team at The Vale Inn – one of the three pubs in The Bollington Brewing Co’s Cheshire-based estate.
A speciality 3 Peaks ale will be available to mark the event, in a canned format, which will be a debut for the Cheshire-based brewery. The event organisers have also teamed up with Poynton-based Juicy Fuel Cola so participants can enjoy a can of the preservative-free drink in their goody bag.
Commenting on the event, Andy Skelhorn said: “It’s great to see the race is growing in awareness, attracting a really broad spectrum of runners, from relative novices to experienced veterans. Those wanting to compete can look out for more details online at bollingtonbrewing.co.uk.”
Lee Wainwright, owner of The Bollington Brewing Co. added: “The event takes a lot of planning and is made possible by a great team of volunteers. As well as being an immense physical challenge for racers, it is a great day for all the family with lots of entertainment on hand. We’re looking forward to this year’s race and hoping the sun will also put in an appearance!”
