VELO RUNNER ALSAGER 5
The 2021 Velo Runner Alsager 5 Mile run will be a Virtual event. It has become apparent that the Covid19 virus is going to be with us for quite a while. Even if we were granted a Road Closure Order we would not receive permission to use the Leisure Centre or School premises.
In addition to this trying to social distance over 1100 runners and spectators would be an impossibility. Another factor in reaching this decision is the goodwill we have with the residence of Alsager over the last 30 years and we would not wish to compromise this relationship.
Therefore for all the above reasons the actual race will not take place in 2021.
Entries are now open and the event will take place over the weekend of 5th to 9th of February 2021
All entrants will receive a souvenir T-shirt; our fabulous Moorland Pottery Mugs will be awarded to the first 3 Male and Female finishers, 1ST Male and Female in each Veteran Category and 1st Male and Female Teams (3 to Count)

winner of Alsager 5 2013
I have run the race a few times when I was up and coming and it was a brilliant stepping stone for me particularly at the beginning of 2013 when I was coming back from an injury.. In my mind it was always a presigious race I wanted to win and finally pulled it off that year by 1 sec!..This gave me huge confidence for the cross country season ahead.. It is and a good grounding for elite club runners wanting to make the step to international level with it being flat and fast honest course.
Stone Marathoner runner
Alsager 5 was my first race of this distance so I took the option of a pacer; a couple of miles in I realised what a great course it was for a good time so I decided to speed up. The support was amazing and I was really spurred on with the friendliness (my stripy socks were commented on a lot!) and encouragement. Ended a fantastic race with a dramatic sprint finish and fully intend to return this year and smash my previous time!
Boalloy Running Club
Brilliant race to start the year, this flat and fast course gives you a great chance of a PB and it always attracts a very strong field.
Newcastle Running Club
Fantastic course that was made with pb times in mind! Its flat and fast with fantastic organisation and a top class field to race against. A race you don't want to miss!
