The Tattenhall Tough Team Race has been running for over 20 years and has become an institution in the Cheshire summer running calendar. It takes place on the Friday in June closest to the longest day and is a competitive, tough but fun multi-terrain race.

The race distance is approximately 9 miles and includes the infamous ‘railway’ or ‘stairway to hell’ as it is affectionately known.  The race is for teams of three with the team achieving the time of the last finisher so teamwork as well as on and off road running are put to the test.

The race starts and finishes at Tattenhall Recreation Club with food and bar available after the race making the event a great opportunity for running clubs to enjoy both a competitive and social event together.
