It will be best foot forward on Sunday 20th May as Anderton Boat Lift stage their inaugural 10K Trail Run and on-mile Fun Run.

Graham Wood, Duty Manager, Anderton Boat Lift, said:" The Anderton Boat Lift is an iconic Cheshire landmark and an example of high Victorian engineering at its very best. Visitors to the site find it fascinating. I can't think of a more inspirational way to start a race than from the base of this giant lift."
"Before and after the race, all the runners and their families will have free access to the historic Anderton Boat Lift's site, meaning they can enjoy looking at the world's first successful boat lift as well as taking advantage of its shop, tree-top coffee shop and exhibition area. Children can also enjoy the Lift's new £50,000 play area. We look forward to welcoming all the runners and their families for what promises to be a great event."
Phil Eccleston, Time2Run Race Organiser, said: "The Lift is an ideal location for a run because it has ample parking, a large site for runners to gather and is located very close to great trails for off-road running through the nearby woodlands. I think runners will find this new run really enjoyable."
"As for all our races, competitors will be individually timed and later we will announce the names of elite runners who will also be part of the race. All runners will receive a bespoke Anderton Boat Lift medal and goody bag."
