Event Summary 2014 



 PSUK Cross Country Championships – Cheshire – Thursday 3 April 2014


This is the first PSUK Athletics event of the year that will hopefully kick-start you into taking part in the many other police fixtures during 2014. The event will take place at Harthill, Tattenhall, Cheshire.


The Ladies race will be over 4 miles (2 laps) commencing at 1. 00pm and the men’s race over 6 miles (3 laps) and will commence at 2-00pm.

This event is incorporated within at an event Wyre Forrest, Bewdley, Worcestershire. It is a forest area with a good network of paths and tracks and provides fast running underfoot. There are some intricate areas of gorse and some slow run areas where careful navigation is required.


There are courses for male, female, veteran and novice runners. These range from circa 5k to 8k in distance. So if you fancy some 'cunning running' in some very picturesque Worcestershire countryside then get yourself entered!


 PSUK Marathon Championships – Milton Keynes – Monday 5 May 2014


This is the first time the PSUK have held their marathon in Milton Keynes. This is a 26.2 mile city marathon with a difference. With 4,500 acres of woodlands, lakesides, parks and landscaped areas within the city boundary, Milton Keynes is the ideal venue for a Green Marathon.


The course is traffic free on closed roads and cycle paths or “redways” as they are known locally, the course is gently undulating with no significant incline providing real PB potential.


This will be a qualification event for the USPE Marathon event to be held in Austria October 2014.
