BVR 25K CELEBRATION RUN

On Sunday 7th September, an army of Belle Vue Racers took to the streets to run all or part of a 25km route to mark the 25th anniversary of the club’s foundation.  The course was a grand sightseeing tour of the history of Belle Vue Racers, taking in parts of our popular races past and present (Hit The Trail through Reddish Vale Country Park and the Eddie Cheetham Memorial Race in Debdale Park) and, significantly, also taking runners past the club’s old home – Pink Bank Lane running track. Sadly, this was demolished to make way for a hockey pitch but stories of hard interval sessions and informal races in the streets near this area remain. Some of the street markings – used for accurate interval sessions – made by our founder, Eddie Cheetham, are still thought visible.
