Winter Running in Cheshire

Although Cheshire does not have any mountains, the hilly terrain has a lot to offer to runners; and in winter this becomes particularly interesting..

This route covers the Middlewood Way; an old railway line now popular with walkers, horse riders and cyclists as well as runners, up as far as Lyme Park on the edge of Cheshire. Today this was deep in snow and finding the trail to run along was tricky enough, let alone the hills on route.

Frodo’s 2014 Year of Running

It has been a genuinely unbelievable year for me and my little hobby of running about. I have covered around 3,000 miles just using my feet, raised over £3,500 for various charities and discovered so many gems we have in the UK as places to visit and run through.

The year, like many others before it, started in January. I had about a week to try and lose what I could of the Christmas beer gut and get myself back to fitness before my first event. There were a lot of big races booked ahead of me, and the first one was a 45 mile ultra, second week in January.
