We organise a 5k race which takes place at 09:30 on the first Saturday of every month.

Its a race everyone can enter young and old, fast and slow, to enter just turn up on Saturday morning either at the Church (at 9:00am) or outside the main hall in Abney Park for a 9:30 start.

Getting There

The map at the bottom of the document shows you directions to the race. If travelling by car please park either by the Scout and Guide Hut in Abney Hall (entrance adjacent to Cheadle Green) or nearby the church which will be open from 08.30-09.00 and can be used to store any bags etc. Toilets are also available in the Church. Please do not park on Cuthbert Rd if at all possible. We will be leaving the Church at about 09:00 to walk to the start of the race outside the main Hall indicated on the map. Alternatively make your own way to the start.
The race starts at 09:30 (There is no longer any parking at The AA)


Post-race refreshments will be available at St Cuthbert’s Church. A café serving hot and cold snacks etc will be open from 09.30 – 11.30

The race

The race is timed and results will be posted on the facebook page. The distance is not measured.


The route is a 2 lap course of the Park starting outside the main Hall and finishing by the Guide hut. It is a trail and care should be taken, watching out for low branches and tree roots. We are guests in the Park and should respect other park users. Marshals will be present to show the route.
