NSRRA 2024 race 1: Alsager 5 starting in…
North Staffordshire Road Runners Association was set up in July 1974 to promote road running in the North Staffordshire region. Members are organised into groups based on ability. There are seven mens and five ladies groups. There are also leagues for different age groups 40 to 44, 45 to 50 etc.
Each year 20 races are chosen to go into the NSRRA programme and the best 12 performances in these races count towards the league competition. In each of the events the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc in each group receives 50, 49, 48, 47 etc points.
You can run as few or as many races as you wish, but normally to be competitive at the top of your group or age group you would need to run 12 races.
Apart from memorial awards, you need to have run 6 races to qualify for an award.

Race 20: Cheddleton 10k
And just like that the 2023 season is over. Race number 20 was the fabulous Cheddleton 10k hosted by Stan Winterton and his team.
As always it was a fantastic atmosphere on this 3 lap course as spectators can watch the race unfold.
A brilliant run from Jordan Thomas of City Of Stoke gave him his first Cheddleton title as did Izzy Shaw from Trentham with a win in the ladies race.
First home for NSRRA were Sam Crozier of Newcastle AC and Izzy Shaw.
Sam shares the men’s championship with Carl Moulton of Boalloy with Izzy Shaw taking the ladies championship.
Thank you to Mick Hall for the photos.
