The Alsager 5 mile race started in 1985 and was called the Butters 5 starting and finishing outside the estate agents town center premises .Always held on the first Sunday in February.
Popular from day one as entries continued to grow it was time to move the race HQ to the Leisure Center one mile down the road.
This happened in 1991 and the race stills starts and finishes at the Leisure Center.
The number of entries continued to climb and now has a 1000 limit which is always reached with race full signs happening before race day.
A flat fast course Alsager is ideal to see how your winter training has gone or if you have just taken up running this is a great first race as it attracts all abilities and all are welcome .
This race not only attracts local runners but also runners from outside the area . It is also the curtain raiser to North Staffs Road Runners first race of the season.
Things got easier for the organizers in 2014 when chip timing was introduced, we sometimes wonder how we managed when it was manual timing with runners finishing one a second and using our 3 lane system.
