i competed in the high legh 10k race for the 4th time today.
in its 5 year history it has built a loyal following of runners who love the slick organisation, snack bar and the cheshire countryside, but when the high speed rail link (HS2) is built the northern and manchester lines converge right through the middle of the race route.
its unbelievable that this beautiful rural race will cross the rail link at least 6 times and thats after years of disruption.
so whats the future for this little gem. maybe 10 years or 15 before its demise.
anyone know of other races that will be affected.
