NSRRA

Celebrating 50 years of NSRRA we wanted to say thank you. So what are we doing?

The Newsletter due out at the end of May / early June will be a special edition to include the history of NSRRA.

When Ken put a post out saying what races had disappeared that seemed to attract lots of attention was the Track 10 Mile so we are bringing it back for a one-off special probably at the end of July.

There are 50th anniversary T-shirts and Hoodies to purchase and the images and links to the shop are further below and here is the part we think you will all enjoy.

Everyone who is a member of NSRRA before 5PM on 12th April will receive free of charge a specially commissioned Moorland Pottery Mug..

Here is the Moorland Pottery Mug that every member is receiving as a thank you.

Here is the link to the shop to purchase the NSRRA 50th Anniversary T-Shirt and Hoodie.


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.
Race 18
Apart from memorial awards, you need to have run 6 races to qualify for an award.

The 31st Annual Stone St Michael’s 10k Road Race is back for
2024!

​The popular 2 lap route takes place in the canal town of
Stone, Staffordshire.

​Probably the flattest and fastest 10k in Staffordshire.
​Prizes to the first 3 Male & Females, plus the usual age
groups.  Also there will be a prize for the fastest local
resident.

This race normally sells out.

​Medal for all finishers.

Race Number 9
Cheadle 4
Date:
Sunday
30th June
Start Time:
10:30AM

It is with great pleasure that Cheadle Running Club bring you the well established Cheadle 4 in 2024 on June 30 th at 10:30am.

The 4 mile race, based in Cheadle, Staffordshire is a scenic rural road run that has a good field of runners every year. The event is well marshalled and has excellent Race HQ Facilities for all of the family.

Race memento is a commemorative microfibre towel for every runner.

There will be cash prizes for the first three, Male and Female and the winner of each Vet category.

Race capacity is 300 and with the challenging 4 miler forming part of the popular NSRRA series there is a potential for a sell out.

You will be able to collect your free 50th Anniversary Moorland Pottery Mug and your Anniversary Hoodie or T Shirt if you have ordered them.

Race Summary:
MEERBROOK 15K

Race Number 7 in our series Meerbrook 15k had sun / showers and hills including the infamous Gun Hill. A highlight of the calendar with the challenge of the climbs but also includes the downhill finish as what goes up must come down.

First time Meerbrook wins for Paul Howard of St Helens Striders and Georgia Stanfield Of Trentham Running Club.
First home for NSRRA were Carl Moulton of Boalloy and Georgia.

Our fabulous Moorland Pottery Mugs for our group winners and 2 NSRRA records for Malcolm Eustace and Rita Banks.

Well done to everyone and thank you Mick Hall for a great event.
