I've started training 5 weeks ago, and am now wanting to book a 5km race, for about a month time. Could anyone recommend a good race in the north wales/cheshire area that would be ideal for a beginner like me??

 Thank you,

parkrun ! There's one starting in Liverpool in march - or what about the Wirral seaside runs ?

Hi Bethan. Can't find any big or biggish races coming up. There's a parkrun on Sat 5th March in Cheadle. 

I haven't done it yet but it's run by a church group so it should be fairly welcoming!
